I have 20 years experience working with children experiencing a variety of life stresses. I use art and play to help children express their emotions and explore solutions. I meet with the child then include the parents to ensure everyone is on board with improving the emotional health of the family home. Home should be a safe place where you can relax and rejuvenate to conquer the world. Educating children and their parents about emotional and behavior solutions, lets them talk through problems to enjoy each other.

Children’s behaviour is often a reflection of their internal experience. Including parents/caregivers in therapy can provide the opportunity for parents to help their child better understand their emotional experiences, to facilitate helpful communication, and to provide an environment that fosters both security and independence. I work with individuals, couples, children and families. Book a free consultation to explore if we are a good fit for therapy.

I have worked with children as young as 5 years old who have seperation anxiety, been abused, have FASD, or come from divorced and/or seperated families. These little people are sponges of their environment and display through spontaneous action what they are trying to cope with in their life. My approach is to help them cope with their emotions through play/art, breathing/relaxation exercises, and listening to their story in order to make sense of thier reaction. It is also imperative that I bridge the gap between keeping the child's confidence while communicating to their caregiver how to help the child on a daily basis.

In N6A 1M1 - Nearby to Southgate.

I work with children 5 years of age and older. Most challenges facing children are situational-environmental. My approach is based on what children require and respond to: respect, patience, calm and playful resourcing. Young children usually know exactly what their troubles are and need a safe, supportive, opportunity to express themselves. Given secure trust, they are creative and open about collaborating toward realistic solutions. Essential to my work with any child is engagement with their primary care-takers as well as relevant collaterals involved, to ensure that a lasting "circle of care" is established.

For young children, I provide special 30-minute virtual sessions where we complete an expressive arts activity, drama exercise, or play session. We work on issues such as understanding emotions, emotional regulation, social skills, coping skills, and self-image building. If your child is struggling with anxiety, anger, depression or needs help with making friends, this might be the right time to reach out. If you are in the Caledon area, I offer in-person, adventure/play therapy in all seasons. I have seen dramatic changes in children's self-confidence and happiness through this type of therapy that transfers to all areas of their lives.

Working with children involves a combination of art, play and novelty. A child's way of problem solving is very different from an adult's. One element that is key, is to ask the child how they view the problem and what they think would make it better.Children are creative and spontaneous and often have similar solutions to their problems. It is important for the therapist to support their ingenious and inventive resolutions. The next step is communicating these ideas to parents and to help them put it into action.

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.

I believe that being a parent is a very tough job. Parents often feel powerless and seek to control their children with shame, guilt and fear. I believe that children need firm, consistent rules and clear, transparent rewards and consequences to guide their behaviours. I am very creative in designing methods of child management that are particular to your child and your family.

Understanding and exploring emotions can be difficult for anyone and lead to complex and often misunderstood reactions. Working with children to support learning about mental health and how and why we feel certain things is so important. I use many types of therapy to support children's needs including expressive arts therapy, and include family engagement when possible and desired. I am here to support your child's and families needs and have a lot of experience supporting children struggling with anxiety, social anxiety, depression, self-esteem difficulties and much more.

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.

Children can experience various challenges that can impact their mental health. Therapy can offer children a safe space and a listening ear while providing different tools and skills to support them in creating change and alleviating distressing emotions and feelings. When working with young children, I seek to get to know them and create a caring, safe and interactive environment where they can explore and learn about their feelings, work through difficulties, better understand themselves and others and learn new ways of engaging with themselves and the world. Schedule a free consultation with me to see if we are a good fit.
