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

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.

Therapist and Consultant

Online Therapist / Coach

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.

Clinical Social Worker/Therapist

I currently work with children 8 years of age, and older. Working with young children requires a very specialized set of skills, as therapy must be engaging and fun, while still being effective. In order to ensure that my young clients connect with the process, I build fun into everything that we do. Through the use of drawing pictures, role playing, story telling, playing games, etc - I am able to connect with young children, thereby helping them to fully engage with, and benefit from, the therapeutic process.

Child Therapist

Bayridge Counselling Centre

Individual, Couples, and Family Counselling

345 Lakeshore Rd. East, Unit 309, Oakville, 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

Emma Vanderkruk, (B.A.) Psychology

Clinical Counsellor

345 Lakeshore Rd. East, Oakville , Ontario

It can be especially scary when a child struggles, because it can be so hard for them to communicate and as adults, we often want to protect them from the things that can hurt them. On top of that, we know that the struggles of childhood can go on to affect adulthood. Fortunately, through different types of counselling, such as play therapy and attachment therapy, young children are often able to find a means of communication and are able to express themselves and their struggles.
