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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

Therapist / Counsellor

In L6X 1K4 - Nearby to Maple.

My children's work is very specific and focused. I work with parents who are having school issues. As a former teacher I know what buttons to push. As a father of 4 and grandfather of 7 I know firsthand the characteristics of children. My other focus is working with parents and lawyers to determine the desires of the child in custody or divorce proceedings. I work hand in hand with a female co therapist to ascertain the correct strategies and solutions. With parental permission I will use outside consult if appropriate.

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

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.

In M8V 1J3 - Nearby to Maple.

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.

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.
