I have a deep respect for children. I work from a basis of compassion and honoring each child for who they are. I offer play and art therapy. These modes are well suited for children as it is through play that children find a way to sort out their experiences and find new ways to orient themselves in their lives. Art can offer a similar approach to play in that they both access the creative intuitive parts of the brain allowing children to heal and grow through their natural modes of being. There are many types of play therapy and which type is used depends on what the child needs, and what situation they are dealing with.

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.

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!

Children can be impacted by transitions and traumas in their lives. When they don’t know how to cope, the stress can build up. I provide safe and compassionate counselling where the child can talk about their feelings without the fear of being judged, better understand why they feel this way and learn strategies to move forward. I help children express their feelings and emotions through the lenses of play and art therapy combined with cognitive behavioural therapy for children. examples of common problems that can be addressed in my therapy: -bullying -loss/grief separation/divorce -depression, anxiety and panic -attachment disorder -behavioural challenges -learning difficulties

Marie has worked with children for many years as a Child and Youth Counsellor. She utilizes various methods--art work--play therapy-- playing games--telling stories. Often she will have the parents present and look for they dynamics between the family. Anxious parents will often raise anxious children. The goal will be to look for the root of the issue. As mentioned before what one person says and what the other person hears often do not correlate. Children can and do misinterpret what is being said to them. They often blame themselves for things that are not their responsibility. This will quickly be discovered. Marie has asked children why they like coming: "Its my time!"
