I do not work with children directly, I work with parents. I do work with willing teens. You may too often feel like a failure as a parent, or be worried for your child’s future when you notice behaviours that upset you. You may be dismayed at how you feel about being a parent, or might have increasing conflict with your partner about your differing values or parenting strategies. Parenting is challenging for all of us, and may be more so depending on your particular child or your upbringing. You can become more aware of how your past influences your parenting today, and make changes. I especially encourage queer parents or parents of queer youth to reach out.

Many times, child therapists overdo the family system in their quest to seek effective solutions for emotional, learning or behavioral concerns with young children. And many times doctors overpathologize issues that shouldn’t be medicated necessarily. This leaves parents wondering what is the best route for their child? Introducing brainwave optimization technology. A fast, effective, natural, and less expensive way to allow your child's brain to make the optimizing changes it desires to make---on its own! Without any external force, opinion, medication, diagnostic, etc. Contact kevin@kevinflemingphd.com or 877-606-6161.

Registered Clinical Counsellors (and Art Therapists)

Vancouver, British Columbia V5T 2G5 | (604) 706-2549

With young children who require support and counselling, we employ very specialized techniques depending on the child and their presenting concern. We support children in expressing their feelings, and will either talk or use art making tools, or employ both in this important first step. We also employ arts activities and play in all sessions with children to best engage them and integrate their learning. Art and play are wonderful tools to reach and connect to children.

Children need to feel that they are an important part of the family. A better understanding of your child and his/her unique desire to possess a specific “place” in the family will help to unravel how his/her beliefs about who he/she is may be affecting their reality and subsequent behaviours. Children may not possess the tools required to problem-solve effectively thus will turn to acting out. Providing a child with effective problem-solving techniques, self-esteem, trust and a sense of being understood is important for inner development.

I work with parents to find solutions to parenting challenges. I coach parents in ways to support and help their children cope with emotional, behavioural, cognitive and physical difficulties. I draw on the wisdom and experience of parents, who know their child best, and work with them to ease the child's suffering and create more harmonious family relationships.

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.

Children, like adults, can be affected by anxiety, stress, pressure and self-esteem issues. It can be very challenging for children to balance a busy lifestyle of sports, school, friends, and personal growth. It can also be very challenging for parents to watch and support their child as they struggle. We use child play therapy as a great tool to support young children in expressing their inner thoughts and feelings, while also creating tools and strategies for how they can cope with things better. We will also work with the parents, as needed to better understand their child and learn tools on how to support them.

In my practice, I work with preschoolers, school-age children, teens, and young adults. I conduct psychoeducational and neuropsychological assessments for learning disabilities, giftedness, ADD and ADHD, organization problems, memory difficulties, developmental delays, FASD, head injuries, and other challenges. I also provide Cogmed training for attention and working memory difficulties. Cogmed can help children with ADD, ADHD, learning disabilities, and executive functioning problems. Cogmed can help your child to improve their short-term memory, stay on task, and concentrate in school. If you’re concerned about your child’s learning, I look forward to hearing from you.
