"My son was bullied at school for 3 years. I could see he was at the point he would not go to school and was becoming very isolated. We got so scared and thought the worst, a friend gave us Kathryn's name. Kathryn saw him and taught him about bullies and why they do what they do. He soon had confidence, stood taller and wanted to go to school every day. What a difference it made in our son once he had understanding. Thank you for saving our son!!" Rachel

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.

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.

Online Registered Psychotherapist and Consultant

Available for Online Therapy

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.

Children experience life, for the most part, in two places being home and school. When a child begins to struggle in either environment or both, counselling can be very effective. Our services work from a "multi-systemic" approach, which means, with proper consent, we collaboratively engage parents, grandparents, teachers, schools, previous counsellors, and any other systems that know the child in order to best assess and develop a treatment plan. Counselling Niagara also assists the parents in engaging and advocating appropriate services to support the needs of the child. We work to support that services are coordinated and consistent amongst service providers. This can often be an essential ele....

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.

Raising children can bring great joy, however parent-child relationships can be extremely challenging at times. It is important to create and model healthy boundaries for our children.

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.
