In N1M 1M5 - Nearby to Rockwood.

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!

In L7M 4P6 - Nearby to Rockwood.

Although I don't work directly with children, I do parent/parenting coaching, which I believe is the foundation in helping our kids grow well and healthy, with good self- esteem and confidence to handle this life. Children learn. They are watching and listening, even when we don't think they are. Ultimately, they will be mad at themselves before they'll be mad at you. Validation is the key to healthy, content, and confident children. I can help you get better at that.

Specifically bullying or behaviors caused by family, school related issues. I have counselled many young children and believe that they need to have a voice. Many children don't have a voice and many challenges come from this. Children often react in unhealthy ways because they aren't being heard. I offer a safe place for children to learn to express their emotions.

Eugenio Counselling Services, MSW and RP Qualifying

Registered Social Worker and Psychotherpist

In N1L 1J3 - Nearby to Rockwood.

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.

Jessica Ricci, MA, RP, DCP(in progress)

Registered Psychotherapist

In N0B 1T0 - Nearby to Rockwood.

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

In L6X 3E7 - Nearby to Rockwood.

I do not specialize in therpay for young children but I do help adults coping with the difficulties to raising young children. Parenthood is not as easy and most people think it might be. We learn parenting skills from our earliest role models, more often than not, our own parents or primary caregivers. This is not always a healthy relationship. This is not always positive parenting. A therapist like myself who has been educated in Early Childhood Developemnt and worked with young children for numerous years can help with the difficulties and stresses you might be feeling and help you to cope with it.

Every step within the treatment approach that I take involves you as a parent or guardian/caregiver.

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!

In N1E 6A8 - Nearby to Rockwood.

Children can often exhibit externalizing or internalizing behaviors when they are unable to express themselves or process/cope with their feelings and emotions. Therapy can be a safe space for children to make sense of their feelings through creative and engaging means. Depending on age, working with young children can entail working with parents on how to best support their child in what they are going through and to give parents a space to reflect on the kind of parent they want to be while expressing concerns or personal challenges they may be experiencing. Schedule a free 15-minute consultation to ensure we are a good fit.

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

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!

The world that children are growing up in today can be confusing and tricky for them to adapt to. I have a preference for working with children and parents/guardians to work towards supporting the child in the distress they have been experiencing. Children can really benefit from having a safe place to express what it is they are experiencing. I suggest having a phone consult for any therapy involving younger children. Please reach out to set up a call today.

In N1H 4E9 - Nearby to Rockwood.

Children in therapy are often grateful for the opportunity to have an adult hear their voice and how they perceive their world. I work with children to help them cope by talking about their feelings in a safe environment and to learn new skills that help them work through their problems. I often utilize a cognitive behavioural therapy approach when working with children who experience feelings like sadness, anger, stress, worry, low self-esteem to collaboratively help them become more resilient to such challenging feelings.

Registered Psychotherapist

In L9W 1E1 - Nearby to Rockwood.

In my practice I work with children in conjunction with the parents and sometimes the whole family. Children are often the 'canary in the coal mine' of the family dynamic and become mirrors of challenges individual members or the family as a whole is experiencing. As it takes a whole village to raise a child, it takes a whole family to help a child in distress heal. That is where my working with children begins, addressing the issues of the family.The family is the garden in which they grow, lets make your 'family garden' as healthy as possible so your children will thrive.

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.

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.
