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 provide safe and compassionate counselling where the child can talk about their feelings without the fear of being judged, better understand why they feel this way and learn strategies to move forward. 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

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.

I have taken some wonderful classes by Nancy Reidel-Bowers, known for her contributions to the world of family and child play therapy. We learned in depth knowledge about child development, and applied that to relevant tools of therapy to engage the child at their level. Creative approaches: sand tray work with miniature figurines, music, drama, clay, art, painting, games, and so on. I look forward to working with you and your child. (Age 12+)

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.

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. We can support you to help your child navigate the challenges they are up against. Your relationship with your child will grow as you grow your confidence to guide them through the difficult terrains. If it makes sense to meet with your child in the process we will, but through our experience supporting you, the parent is the most effective route!

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.

Having trained as a child and youth worker I am able to work with a variety of issues facing children. I am experienced in building a strong relationship with children and providing them with a space to learn and grow so they can express their thoughts and emotions in a healthy manner. This can lead to a reduction in emotional outbursts, increase self regulation and improved emotional intelligence.

With my many years in education I am able and skilled at working with and relating to children and adolescents. Childhood should be a time for healthy growth and development. For many children and teens, it is a time of great emotional stress. Children react to stress in many ways including withdrawal and acting out behaviors at home and school. I am here to help children and families learn the life skills necessary to be successful and happy. Family counseling may help to promote better relationships and understanding within your family. There is no shame in needing support. Family counseling during a divorce, or a child experiencing trauma can help all of you find some peace.

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.

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.
