At MCCG we offer counselling services that are aimed towards helping young children. Our therapists use different methods to encourage young children to be able to express their difficulties such as play and art therapy. Using these non-direct approaches help children to better discuss their own feelings and feel more comfortable with the process. This allows our therapists to gain insight into the unconscious mind of the child and help them process their emotions.

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.

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.

Young children look to their caregivers to guide them navigate this world and seek support during distressing moments. Parents that are able to tune-in to their children are able to pick up their child's cues. From time to time, children get caught in a negative behavioural cycle and seek their parent's attention in a negative manner. In counselling children, I support them to develop awareness of their needs and I teach them ways to seek support from their parents in a positive manner.

All of my work with children/youth includes the caregiver/parent in every aspect of the work. I do not believe in undermining the child's authority in any manner. Much of the work with children/youth should include their most important caretakers in fully influence the change. I have many years of experience in issues regarding child/family work in community and hospital settings. In addition I am very informed about the resources that may assist your child/family needs. if I cannot assist you I will ensure that you are directed to the resources that will help you out.

Young children need an approach that is developmentally appropriate for them. As a Professional Art Therapist, I use art and play therapy to help children express and process their feelings and make changes. Art therapy helps children express what they may have trouble verbalizing and also serves as a bridge to help children become more verbal. I partner with parents to taylor an approach that is attune to where their child is at and what the needs are.

They do not know to tell their parents and friends about what is going on inside them They may seem to erupt like a volcano or become silent and withdrawn. it is at times liek these that giving them an opportuingty to talk, play,sing and even use their body to release feelings is so helpful. We use a variety of techniques to help them feel better. Invite us to join with you in this journey.

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.

We were all there once upon a time and can you put yourself back in those shoes? Children change as they grow and we need to grow as well as parents. We need to develop ourselves in the ways we understand our kids otherwise they can out grow us, leading to issues outside of our scope and capability. Ideally we can grow faster in parenting skills knowledge and understanding than our kids do!

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.
