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.

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!

I can work with children over the age of 6 to process difficult feelings that stem from situations of abuse, neglect or who have had a lack of consistency in their upbringing. I will utilize tools such as drawing pictures and I will use other objects to represent feelings to teach the skills to your child in a less traumatic way. I also work on the early teaching of anxiety reduction skills with your child to better allow them to cope with their feelings. I also believe in your involvement as a parent because you know your child best and all these skills need to be practiced at home with you and your child!

Because children do not yet possess the vocabulary required to express their emotions, Counselling with children takes on a different form. Using creative avenues, such as play and expressive arts, children and youth are encouraged to explore their obstacles and challenges in a safe and supported environment. Counselling with children is most beneficial with the collaborative support of parents and/or guardians.

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
