It can be especially scary when a child struggles, because it can be so hard for them to communicate and as adults, we often want to protect them from the things that can hurt them. On top of that, we know that the struggles of childhood can go on to affect adulthood. Fortunately, through different types of counselling, such as play therapy and attachment therapy, young children are often able to find a means of communication and are able to express themselves and their struggles.

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.)

Being a parent is hard work, and it makes perfect sense that parents and caregivers need support at times! Along with working with older children, I have worked with families of young children (aged infant/newborn to six years old) for a number of years. I specifically spent 5 years on a specialty team that focused solely on the mental health needs of our youngest members of society, helping their parents and caregivers to become more confident in their responses to their babies and children. My goal is always to leave families with a greater sense of harmony, an increased ability to handle the big emotions using a variety of appraoches, and a greater ability to enjoy their little ones.

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.

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. If I can support you to provide the support for your young child, that's the smoothest route for them. While I may be fun to meet with, they really want you to guide them through the difficult terrains. However, if it makes sense to meet with them I draw on my rich training and experience in expressive arts, which includes the use of play therapy to faciliate change and healing in young children.

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.

Having trouble with your child (6-12 years old) who is acting out? Don't know how to handle a situation and don't know if what your're doing is the right thing? Parenting is hard and does not come with a guide book. It is the most important job in our lives and yet the most challenging at the same time. I can offer you concrete and practical tools to help better manage your child's behavior. The goal is to connect with your child so that they will want to cooperate with you. If you succeed in connecting with your child, you will find that you are yelling and punishing less. I help parents be more efficient and have more peaceful households by using strategies that work.
