Adrienne Richardson, Ph.D MsED RP OCT

Registered Psychotherapist

In L2E 1Y3 - Nearby to Niagara on the Lake.

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.

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!

Building bonds or affection and trust is a very important part of parenting children of any age. Sometimes parents need support as they try to determine what their child needs and where to go. Adoption of a child changes dynamics in the family and requires parents to welcome their child with love at the same time as they are trying to address their child's special needs and need for security. Blended families face similar challenges as do children navigating the divorce of their parents.

ON Registered and Regulated Social Worker/Psychotherapist for Relationships & Stress

In L2R 5W5 - Nearby to Niagara on the Lake.

Children and teens are growing up in a fast-changing world. Life can be overwhelming. How can counselling help? Younger children express themselves best through play. Both parents and therapists may learn a great deal by watching children play or from their art work. We ask questions to explore the child’s feelings and support the child’s own problem-solving. Older children may like workbooks, exercises. Family Therapy is yet another approach. With help from the therapist, all family members can express themselves and hear each other in ways that usually do not happen in today’s busy households. Family Therapy works better if the children are old enough to stay focused for an hour.

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.

In L2R 4Z4 - Nearby to Niagara on the Lake.

Wellness Counselling Centre helps children of all ages, including young preschoolers, build coping and emotional regulation skills as resources to help them in their daily lives. I work with children who have experienced trauma, loss, divorce, learning challenges, sensory processing challenges, anxiety, depression, abuse, bullying, attachment dysregulation, and more. Children best learn, and communicate, through play. As such, I utilize various creative therapy approaches with them, including art therapy, play therapy, structured sensory interventions, and sand tray play. If your child is needing support, I would be happy to help them begin their journey from hurt towards hope.

Registered Social Worker and Psychotherpist

Children many times don't have the cognitive abilities to understand why they feel the way they feel, which means it is very difficult to express their experiences verbally. Children also do not experience trauma, depression and anxiety the same way adults do. Sometimes their fears, stress and sadness can actually lead them to act out, act inappropriately, be angry, become hyperactive, etc. I provide a safe space for children to process their experiences in their way and allow them to communicate their feelings, their way.
