REGISTERED CLINICAL COUNSELLOR (BCACC #11188)

In V2C 3J4 - Nearby to Sun Peaks.

I strongly believe that counselling children requires special strategies beyond just talking and listening. In my practice I use play therapy, sand tray therapy and therapeutic story telling. Using all of the expressive arts helps children express their feeling when they aren't able or just don't feel like talking. As a certified trauma consultant trained with the Institute for Trauma and Loss in Children, I have the skills and experience to counsel children of all ages in a comfortable, nurturing environment. I enjoy working with children and as a result they enjoy working with me.

I set up play environments so children can feel safe, express themselves, and get the attunement and support they need to make sense of their own experiences. Within the safety of the play setting, and the reflective listening, guidance and validation, children can build skills, confidence, and move through their grief and loss easier. Figurines, montages, sand trays, Role play, art work, music, experiences with nature are some of the the tools used in play therapy. Sometimes it is the parents that need the support to strengthen their parenting structure, so they have more time and energy to enjoy their children. Getting past hurt and resistance behaviour builds love and trust.

Children hold a unique view of the world that is often very different from that of an adult. Understanding their vision is important when we strive to understand their emotions and behaviours. My work with children ranges, depending on their age and cognitive abilities, but the goal of gaining insight into how they view the world remains the same.

We have a play room set up for working with children. My approach is to meet the child at their level through art, talk, and play. Children may also be invited to sessions for family work as they are part of the family system. Some of the approaches informing my work with with children are Family Systems Therapy, Response-Based Approach, Narrative Therapy, and Play Therapy.

registered professional counsellor

In V2E 2N4 - Nearby to Sun Peaks.

Children do not typically process their problems using talk therapy. Using Sandplay therapy, Art, Bibliotherapy and other play techniques children can begin to process and make sense of their world and naturally, through play can begin to process some of their probems. My room is set up in a child friendly way with intentionally placed therapeutic toys. My office is a place where children feel safe, nurtured and cared for.

Ferne Strain, MSW, RSW
Child Therapist

Ferne Strain, MSW, RSW

Registered social worker

In V2B 6G2 - Nearby to Sun Peaks.

Ferne uses play therapy to help young children express themselves, work out issues in their lives, learn boundaries, be more confidence and gain a positive self image. Play therapy works good with children who have behaviour challenges, learning challenges and developmental issues. Children learn through play therapy to work through traumatic events in the past and present. They learn healthy boundaries in a trust worthy accepting environment. They led the play and develop confidence which carries over to their daily lives. Play therapy helps many non verbal children express their needs and stress in their lives.

Children are resilient. They have an amazing way of adapting to change in the world around them. When a child has lost their ability to adapt or is no longer able to cope and manage their world, a multitude of behaviors can manifest. This can be scary and frustrating for the parent or caregiver and can be equally difficult for the child. We understand and appreciate the struggles that children face today and how challenging parenting can be. We will work together to uncover the underlying issues and recreate harmony for both the child and/or parent. In a warm and understanding environment we will use a variety of techniques, customized to your child'd individual needs.
