Through the use of play, art, or sandtray, children can begin to communicate their inner worlds. This form of communication, also provides a safe way of externalizing feelings that may be too overwhelming to talk about directly, but also a vehicle to make explicit that which a child cannot find language to express. My hope it to support your child to safely identify and express their inner realities; act as a safe container for this to occur; better understand the positive and protective intent of the challenges they experience; and support them to experience a healing and reparative experience in therapeutic sessions.

Parenting is challenging and if their was one parenting approach I would be a millionaire. Instead parenting demands matching parenting style with the unique needs of children. This is challenging as it would be much easier if we could say do X Y and Z. I spend time with each family and match the intervention to the needs of the child with the capability of 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.

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.

Having trouble with your child (6-12 years old) who is acting out? Don't know how to handle a situation and don't know if what your're doing is the right thing? Parenting is hard and does not come with a guide book. It is the most important job in our lives and yet the most challenging at the same time. I can offer you concrete and practical tools to help better manage your child's behavior. The goal is to connect with your child so that they will want to cooperate with you. If you succeed in connecting with your child, you will find that you are yelling and punishing less. I help parents be more efficient and have more peaceful households by using strategies that work.

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.

Child Therapist

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

Social Worker, Psychotherapist, ADD Specialist, Life Coach

Within driving distance of East York

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.

Registered Psychotherapist and Art Therapist

I have been working with young children (age 3 and up) who have have to deal with stress and anxiety and the other challenges. They love coming to my office, sitting front of lots of art materials and create art works related to those subjects and memories that bothers them and they cannot express just with words. Combining art and psychotherapy, simply helps them feel comfortable and safe.

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.

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 first session is a meeting with the child's custodial parent(s), to obtain the necessary history and concerns observed or reported. Play therapy is the method used with young children. This involves the use of toys, arts and crafts, and puppet play. Psychoeducational materials, such as books are also included in the sessions as needed. When appropriate, parents will be included in the therapy, as children are encouraged to turn to their primary supports for direction outside of therapy and of course upon the end of counselling.
