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 look forward to working with you and your child. (Age 12+)

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

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.

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!

Registered Social Worker, Psychotherapist

In N1H 2W7 - 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.

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.)

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

Pre-Licenced Psychotherapist

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.

While I have worked with some young children and it is not my primary area of work. What I have done with them has been highly successful. I find children take in what you say and do their 'homework' with a lot of enthusiasm. If their parent (s) also support them to do it - this helps tremendously. Giving them physical /somatic exercises to help them deal with stress for e.g. has worked well.

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.

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.

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

We have worked with children as young as 3 years of age. We have helped client deal with parenting issues as well as with trauma issues. Often, parents need help understanding why their children are behaving in the manner in which they are and how to help their children cope. Parents need coping skills too, especially when dealing with childhood trauma. With the children I have used therapeutic play as well as social stories. Children are very resilient and can give us all hope for healing.

In N0B 1B0 - 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!
