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.

Bayridge Counselling Centre

Individual, Couples, and Family Counselling

4300 Village Centre Court,, Mississauga, Ontario

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.

Child Therapist

Clairelise Folch, MA, RP, OACCPP

Certified Counsellor and Registered Psychotherapist

1401 Golden Meadow Trail, Oakville, Ontario

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

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 am a former school teacher who has co-parented and worked with children around the world. I especially am interested in the happiness of children of divorce, or of two-home families. I have written the Imagine Program (click on View Profile) in order to help parents understand the world through the eyes of children, practise age appropriate parenting plans, and contribute to their children's success in school and life.

Child Therapist

Tressa Porter, M.A.

Registered Psychotherapist and Consultant

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.
