Do your kid avoid going to school, find it hard to concentrate, feel sad, anxious, or angry, have a hard time socialize with other kids, challenge authorities and break rules all the time? There is always HOPE! I use art and play therapy as well as supportive counselling to help kids express themselves and learn coping strategies to increase their self-esteem, manage their negative emotions, and improve their social skills. After completing counselling, they will be able to achieve better grades and improve relationships with family members, peers and teachers. I also provide training for parents to learn effective parenting skills to manage children's challenging behaviors.

At MCCG we offer counselling services that are aimed towards helping young children. Our therapists use different methods to encourage young children to be able to express their difficulties such as play and art therapy. Using these non-direct approaches help children to better discuss their own feelings and feel more comfortable with the process. This allows our therapists to gain insight into the unconscious mind of the child and help them process their emotions.

As a Child and Youth Psychotherapist specialized in Developmental Psychology I can help you understand and master all of the stages that can be challenging; from the first time you hold your baby and feel an overwhelming responsibility: breastfeeding; toilet training; sleep disturbances; tantrums; defiant or aggressive behavior: school phobia; isolation; sexual curiosity; sexual abuse; trauma; divorce; blended family; grieving; anxiety or depression. I provide the therapeutic means to help your child overcome it achieving self-esteem. Through caring parenting sessions you will regain Authority, meaning you are the author of your child’s life, the most important influence in the first years.

Children are a delight to work with. I love creating with children through art and then finding ways for them to express their story through the process. I work with children from about age 7 or 8, as I am not a play therapist and I do not have play therapy specific training (play therapy is generally seen as a preferred method with younger children). However I will help a child or teenager have a special space just for themselves to express themselves as they need. I have worked with children and teens around grief and loss, anxiety, parental separation, and abuse within the family.

Children do not understand their emotions and that can be difficult for adult caregivers to process. Children need to be taught coping and life skills in order to be equipped to manage their daily stressors. Play therapy is a useful tool in working with children because while they are learning the skills needed they are having fun. Cognitive therapy with children involves helping them gain perspective on what they are feeling.

Being a mother of five children I have personal experience working with young children. Professionally I incorporate play therapy into my overall scope of practice which allows me to meet your child on their level emotionally, psychologically, and developmentally. Having worked with numerous young children with great success I am confident that given the opportunity I could help your child address their unique difficulties with care and patience.

Child Therapist

Clairelise Folch, MA, RP, OACCPP

Certified Counsellor and Registered Psychotherapist

Within driving distance of East York

Children learn by trial, error and parental guidance, and when faced with new situations or expectations, emotions will surface as a normal reaction. Young children have limited communication skills, and often a temper tantrum is the only means to communicate that they need help. However, when severe emotional symptoms develop into an unhealthy pattern, parents should seek professional help. As an Expressive Arts therapist, I enter the child's world of emotions and thinking through play, art and music. Children love to play. It is their language of communication. Let me offer you my help to explore goals, solutions, coping skills and support for your child. 905-842-3626

Parenting your children is one of the most challenging and rewarding jobs. As much as all parents want best for their children, it is not always easy. With years of experiences working with parents and children and adolescents over the issues of mis-behaviour in the home, sibling rivalry, bullying, low self-esteem, peer pressure, school failure, truancy, drug issues, etc., I am here to offer a road map with practical, hands on guidance, such as: setting structure in the home, increasing efficient parenting skills, and how to talk to kids so that they listen.

Child Therapist

Jennifer Shneer, AWCCA, M.S.W., RSW, CT

Registered Social Worker

When working with children, I use play therapy. Since play is fun, it makes it easier for children to confront what is bothering them. Play therapy can be used with children who are experiencing a variety of problems. I use a variety of different play therapy approaches and techniques in my work with children. I select and adapt interventions appropriate to the child’s age, interests, and treatment needs.

The sign of your child's/teen's emotional distress is often evident in his or her behaviour. Parents may notice unexplained changes that may include problems with sleep, appetite, mood, social or academic functioning. Often these are signs of emotional distress. Adverse events such as the death of a loved one, illness, divorce or separation, abuse, bullying, or peer pressure may also contribute to this distress. In child and adolescent psychotherapy, young people can make sense of their troubled thoughts and feelings. Regular parent meetings are an important part of the process, whereby the parent(s) can begin to understand and make sense of their child's behaviour.

I teach parents how to be the primary "therapists" for their children. Although children will sometimes need their own individual counseling, there are times when parents can apply interventions at home that will help children behave better, have fewer tantrums, perform better in school, sleep better, overcome certain fears and phobias, have higher self-esteem and so on. My book "Raise Your Kids without Raising Your Voice" has helped thousands of parents learn techniques to bring out the best in their kids and themselves. In counseling, I address individual challenges that children have and design specific interventions.

Child Therapist

John Schurmann, B.A. Psych, B.S.W. (Hon), M.S.W.

Social Worker, Psychotherapist, ADD Specialist, Life Coach

I love working with children!! Children are wired to learn. Often, though, they struggle to communicate their needs, wants and wishes with others in a proper way. Likewise, adults struggle in the same way and/or feel inadequate in coaching their children. Broken communication lines can cause major side effects. This is where I come in. I'm able to connect with most children quit rapidly. I find that whenever children feel understood, they quickly establish a safe bond and share their stories with me. Once this bond is built, most children can't wait to come back to see me for more life coaching/counselling. Parents are always surprised by this.
