Lindsay Simmons, MSW, RSW

Clinical Social Worker/Therapist

In L7N 3C6 - Nearby to Puslinch.

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.

Counselling for young children can address challenges with behaviour and emotions, trauma, stress, self-expression and problem-solving. Children can face many stressors including bullying and other school stressors, as well as family-related changes such as divorce, a move, illness and death. I include many modalities in therapy with young children, including music, art, play and role-playing.

Registered Psychotherapist & Canadian Certified Counsellor

In N1H 2W7 - Nearby to Puslinch.

I have taken some wonderful classes by Nancy Reidel-Bowers, known for her contributions to the world of family and child play therapy. We learned in depth knowledge about child development, and applied that to relevant tools of therapy to engage the child at their level. Creative approaches: sand tray work with miniature figurines, music, drama, clay, art, painting, games, and so on. I played Wii video games for an entire session with a client once. He talked and laughed more than I had ever heard before; it was a beautiful moment in our relationship and in his therapy moving forward. I look forward to working with you and your child.

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

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.

In N1E 3J1 - Nearby to Puslinch.

Children many times don't have the cognitive abilities to understand why they feel the way they feel, which means it is very difficult to express their experiences verbally. Children also do not experience trauma, depression and anxiety the same way adults do. Sometimes their fears, stress and sadness can actually lead them to act out, act inappropriately, be angry, become hyperactive, etc. I provide a safe space for children to process their experiences in their way and allow them to communicate their feelings, their way.

Psychologist

In L7P 3B8 - Nearby to Puslinch.

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

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.

Paul Young, MSW, RSW

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!

Counsellor/Therapist

In L7R 4M2 - Nearby to Puslinch.

Growing up can often bring forth many difficulties, especially when it is so difficult to explain what it is that is bothering you. In therapy with children, I focus on creating a positive environment with children in which they are able to share with me what it is that they like or enjoy doing, and believe me everyone has something they like, to help expand their understandings of themselves and move past the difficulties they are experiencing in the moment. It has been my experience in working with children that they have all of the tools and abilities to help themselves, but they sometimes just need someone who can help them figure out what to do with their tools and abilities.
