Children are remarkably sensitive to their environments, particularly to what is going on for their parents. Often, when a child is acting out or seems troubled somehow, it is a reflection of what is going on at home. Young children do not yet have the capacity to put into words what their needs and feelings are. For this reason, in therapy I use various types of play and art activities to decipher what children are experiencing and may need from their caregivers. I work closely with children's caregivers to help them gain insight into what their children feel and need. I assist the caregivers to develop secure attachment bonds with their children.

Play is the language which most young people speak so I will include playful interactions to establish rapport and allow the person to express and explore their world with me. My approach may include puppet play, games, and symbolic story-telling. usually I will meet with the parent first to find out about the backfround, history, and perceived difficulties in the child's life.

With the exception of abuse or extreme attachment trauma, the support I can provide for young children is directed at the parents. As young children are rarely in control of their environments, and are unlikely to have developed the appropriate Executive, Language, Emotional Regulation, Cognitive Flexibility or Social Skills for talk therapy (even augmented with play, art and music), parents are supported in collaboratively working to help develop these skills in their children, instilling perceptions of capability, purpose and significance, and personal power. Parents are encouraged to be kind and firm, emphasizing respect and connection.

As it changes our relationships to almost everything and everyone, from our sense of identity to our relationships with our partners and friends.

Having worked as an elementary school teacher for over a decade, I understand the struggles young children go through at home and at school. I work with children to overcome their anxieties and struggles through therapy not medicine. This often involves parental support at home to reinforce the therapy that happens during sessions. Children are very resilient and can regain their sense of balance in life more readily and quickly than adults!

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.

Inside of each of us is a child. Corny I know however if we can approach the children who will one day be our leaders we will bring healing to the child in us and the next generation. Empathize with everyone. Man, woman and child. That is my framework and philosophy. Children and teens/young adults are our legacy. Let us treat them well - with compassion, acceptance, respect and ultimately Hope.

I help parents deal with young children in a way that brings more loving and acceptance into their family. I often ask, what is your young child trying to tell you by his or her acting out or misbehaviour or intense emotions. In this way, we can explore together how the child's needs can be met in more positive ways, and how you can model more helpful behaviour and feelings to the child.
