Registered Social Worker

In K1S 2E1 - Nearby to Ottawa Vanier.

I provide counselling to children ages 7 and up who are experiencing stress, worry, bullying, anger, sadness, behavioural challenges, interpersonal difficulties, or who feel easily overwhelmed. I help your child identify their thoughts, feelings, and behaviours and develop age appropriate strategies and tools to be able to relieve their distress and resolve their difficulties. Parents are welcome to participate, of course. Using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Mindfulness, games, books, role playing, problem solving, and social skills, I work with your child to address their underlying concerns. I welcome children with ADHD, Autism, and learning disabilities.

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.

In K2A 3V6 - Nearby to Ottawa Vanier.

Youth will find a safe and secure environment where they can divulge their daily worries and concerns and work on developing problem solving skills to face everyday challenges. By using their strengths and qualities youth will work on developing the tools and skills needed for them to cope with their emotions in a healthy way and to reach their academic and future career goals. Youth will learn to build better relationships with their families, teachers and peers. If the Client is consenting, families will be included in the child's therapeutic journey and a goal will be set to help families develop meaningful bonds through healthy communication and understanding.

Counsellor/Therapist/Registered Psychotherapist

In K2K 2E2 - Nearby to Ottawa Vanier.

Children and youth may need a neutral, safe place to express themselves. Therapy can help healing, develop coping skills, and relieve stress. If you notice a change of personality, loss of pleasure in enjoyable activities, sleep difficulties, withdrawal, fears and anxieties, or a behavioural regression, therapy might be recommended. When dealing with children and youth using the least invasive method is proven to be the most effective. Accordingly, if possible, I like to counsel the parent(s) to help the child, and only meet with their child if required or if it is requested by the child.

In K2L 1M8 - Nearby to Ottawa Vanier.

Much of my time is taken up working with children and their parents. Currently in the Advanced level training program at the Neufeld Institute, I am actively providing consultation and training. (see, www.AttachmentOttawa.org) The Neufeld Institute is committed to putting parents back into the driver’s seat with regards to their own children. Our mission is to use developmental science to rejoin parents and teachers to their own natural intuition. All our endeavours are based on the understanding that the context for raising children is their attachments to those responsible for them. The primary thrust is prevention although the paradigm is also applicable to the most troubled of children and ....

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.

Registered Psychotherapist; Individual and Family Therapist

In K1A 0A1 - Nearby to Ottawa Vanier.

Child counselling and therapy supports children and families through difficulties; family changes, unexplained behaviours, learning challenges, anxiety, losses, managing emotions, or with parenting coaching. Creative approaches including play therapy keep children interested, and involve parents so the family as a team learns how to make hard things easier. For youth, talk therapy and creative ideas help to motivate change, with appropriate parent involvement. My background in education and family work gives me unique experience to support your family to understand yourself better, develop coping skills, explore emotions, and work towards the family lifestyle you prefer. Serve Ottawa & west.

In K2G 1G9 - Nearby to Ottawa Vanier.

Because children do not yet possess the vocabulary required to express their emotions, Counselling with children takes on a different form. Using creative avenues, such as play and expressive arts, children and youth are encouraged to explore their obstacles and challenges in a safe and supported environment. Counselling with children is most beneficial with the collaborative support of parents and/or guardians.

In K1R 5P2 - Nearby to Ottawa Vanier.

I can work with children over the age of 6 to process difficult feelings that stem from situations of abuse, neglect or who have had a lack of consistency in their upbringing. I will utilize tools such as drawing pictures and I will use other objects to represent feelings to teach the skills to your child in a less traumatic way. I also work on the early teaching of anxiety reduction skills with your child to better allow them to cope with their feelings. I also believe in your involvement as a parent because you know your child best and all these skills need to be practiced at home with you and your child!
