While I have worked with some young children and it is not my primary area of work. What I have done with them has been highly successful. I find children take in what you say and do their 'homework' with a lot of enthusiasm. If their parent (s) also support them to do it - this helps tremendously. Giving them physical /somatic exercises to help them deal with stress for e.g. has worked well.

Children in therapy are often grateful for the opportunity to have an adult hear their voice and how they perceive their world. I work with children to help them cope by talking about their feelings in a safe environment and to learn new skills that help them work through their problems. I often utilize a cognitive behavioural therapy approach when working with children who experience feelings like sadness, anger, stress, worry, low self-esteem to collaboratively help them become more resilient to such challenging feelings.

I have worked with parents and children for more than 15 years, and recognize that each family, and each child is unique. Children and their families need to be understood in order to best help out. While at times the resolution can come from working with the child, often, working also, or even just, with the parents can be most successful. I value the parent/child bond, and see the purpose of counselling as to strengthen that bond, not come between it!

All of my work with children/youth includes the caregiver/parent in every aspect of the work. I do not believe in undermining the child's authority in any manner. Much of the work with children/youth should include their most important caretakers in fully influence the change. I have many years of experience in issues regarding child/family work in community and hospital settings. In addition I am very informed about the resources that may assist your child/family needs. if I cannot assist you I will ensure that you are directed to the resources that will help you out.

In my practice I work with children in conjunction with the parents and sometimes the whole family. Children are often the 'canary in the coal mine' of the family dynamic and become mirrors of challenges individual members or the family as a whole is experiencing. As it takes a whole village to raise a child, it takes a whole family to help a child in distress heal. That is where my working with children begins, addressing the issues of the family.The family is the garden in which they grow, lets make your 'family garden' as healthy as possible so your children will thrive.

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.

We were all there once upon a time and can you put yourself back in those shoes? Children change as they grow and we need to grow as well as parents. We need to develop ourselves in the ways we understand our kids otherwise they can out grow us, leading to issues outside of our scope and capability. Ideally we can grow faster in parenting skills knowledge and understanding than our kids do!

Children can be impacted by transitions and traumas in their lives. When they don’t know how to cope, the stress can build up.

I help children express their feelings and emotions through the lenses of play and art therapy combined with cognitive behavioural therapy for children. examples of common problems that can be addressed in my therapy: -bullying -loss/grief separation/divorce -depression, anxiety and panic -attachment disorder -behavioural challenges -learning difficulties

Young children are faced with many issues and challenges including divorce recovery, anxiety, depression, ADHD, addictions and others. The approach taken is not only a cognitive approach but a practical “hands on” , “activity based” exercise approach. Pet therapy, art therapy and solution and strength based methods are used for the child in order to reinforce certain cognitive methods of thinking. As a professional, I have had extensive training and a lengthy amount of experience (16 years) in dealing with all ages including young child to youth to young adult. Possible other topics include goal building, personality type, career exploration, safe coping strategies and many more

I do not specialize in therpay for young children but I do help adults coping with the difficulties to raising young children. Parenthood is not as easy and most people think it might be. We learn parenting skills from our earliest role models, more often than not, our own parents or primary caregivers. This is not always a healthy relationship. This is not always positive parenting. A therapist like myself who has been educated in Early Childhood Developemnt and worked with young children for numerous years can help with the difficulties and stresses you might be feeling and help you to cope with it.

Every step within the treatment approach that I take involves you as a parent or guardian/caregiver.

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.

Finding a therapist for a young child is difficult; you want to find the right fit for your family as well as someone your child can connect and feel safe with. When working with children, rapport (the trust in the therapeutic relationship) is at the core of healing. I take the time needed to develop this rapport during my first introduction with your child, using targeted expression therapy to get to the root of his/her concerns. This often involves talking or drawing pictures of feelings and giving a name to the 'problem'. I also practice within a strict family integration approach, building the core strengths of your family while working alongside your child on the path to wellness

We have worked with children as young as 3 years of age. We have helped client deal with parenting issues as well as with trauma issues. Often, parents need help understanding why their children are behaving in the manner in which they are and how to help their children cope. Parents need coping skills too, especially when dealing with childhood trauma. With the children I have used therapeutic play as well as social stories. Children are very resilient and can give us all hope for healing.
