Working with younger children as a parent requires a lot more than love. Children communicate most of their needs in nonverbal methods that can be mistaken for stubbornness, defiance, shyness, anger, hate, etc. They are yet to develop more complex ways of communicating feelings and needs. The ideal way to working with younger children is to gain an understanding of the needs that lie behind a specific behaviors and finding ways to redirect that energy.

Tressa Porter, M.A.

Online Registered Psychotherapist and Consultant

Available for Online Therapy

When our young children are struggling, the best route for support is to work with you, the parents first. Together we explore the challenges your little one is up against and we can discover new ways to support your child. If I can support you to provide the support for your young child, that's the smoothest route for them. While I may be fun to meet with, they really want you to guide them through the difficult terrains. However, if it makes sense to meet with them I draw on my rich training and experience in expressive arts, which includes the use of play therapy to faciliate change and healing in young children.

565 Sanitorium Rd., Unit 204A, Hamilton, Ontario

Growing up can often bring forth many difficulties, especially when it is so difficult to explain what it is that is bothering you. In therapy with children, I focus on creating a positive environment with children in which they are able to share with me what it is that they like or enjoy doing, and believe me everyone has something they like, to help expand their understandings of themselves and move past the difficulties they are experiencing in the moment. It has been my experience in working with children that they have all of the tools and abilities to help themselves, but they sometimes just need someone who can help them figure out what to do with their tools and abilities.

There are a wide range of issues that affect children - they are vulnerable to many kinds of maltreatment and increasing stressors in our culture. However children often find it difficult to express their feelings and fears, which means that problems can be left undetected and unresolved. It is helpful then, to seek professional help if a child seems unhappy or distressed. With children, the construction of a trusting relationship between counsellor and client is especially important. Sometimes the counsellor will use puppets or sandboxes or play therapy to allow the child to tell their own story. In a safe trusting environment, the child can find their way towards emotional health.
