Counsellor, Professional Art Therapist

In N1R 1S3 - Nearby to Puslinch.

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.

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.

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 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.

Therapist, Registered Social Worker

In N0B 1B0 - Nearby to Puslinch.

I have worked with parents and children for more than 15 years, and recognize that each family, and each child is unique. Children and their families need to be understood in order to best help out. While at times the resolution can come from working with the child, often, working also, or even just, with the parents can be most successful. I value the parent/child bond, and see the purpose of counselling as to strengthen that bond, not come between it!

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.

Therapy for adolescents can improve the quality of life at home and have a significantly positive impact on the process of becoming an adult. When your adolescent has emotional or behavioral problems, a common thing you might hear from family members is “he/she will grow out of it with time”; sometime they do and sometime not. I strongly encourage families not to take their adolescents lightly by starting them with early sessions. They will get the necessary coping mechanisms that they will need to utilize in challenging times. Many parents visit my office for the first time feeling helpless and worried as to whether they are doing the right things, they are concerned things are getting from bad to worse. I’ve helped adolescent fine-tune their balance so...(view profile to read more)

Mental health begins in infancy and childhood. Many issues in adulthood can be traced back to development in childhood. Learn the necessary skills to foster healthy parent/child attachments. The task of development involves mastering a number of milestones; emotional, cognitive and academic. Most work with children relies heavily on the involvement of the parent/caregiver. Learn ways to support your children to develop healthy ways to regulate emotions (e.g. anxiety/frustration/depression), problem solve and deal with relationships. (Psychological and Psycho-educational assessments are available.)

Therapist, Counsellor

In L9C 7N4 - Nearby to Puslinch.

I specialize in working with children ages 4 and up. My goal is to create a warm, inviting environment where children need the opportunity to express themselves, but they also need to be able to do it in the way that comes most naturally to them: play. I believe it's important that kids can have a place where they can have fun and develop their natural potential. This may mean learning to express emotions, improving behaviour or learning coping skills

Child Therapist

Jessica Ricci, MA, RP

Registered Psychotherapist

In L7J 1G8 - Nearby to Puslinch.

Finding a therapist for a young child is difficult; you want to find the right fit for your family as well as someone your child can connect and feel safe with. When working with children, rapport (the trust in the therapeutic relationship) is at the core of healing. I take the time needed to develop this rapport during my first introduction with your child, using targeted expression therapy to get to the root of his/her concerns. This often involves talking or drawing pictures of feelings and giving a name to the 'problem'. I also practice within a strict family integration approach, building the core strengths of your family while working alongside your child on the path to wellness
