Children are subjected more and more to bullying nowadays. Paired with parents who are working more and more and have less and less time available to really be with and hear their children and their experience. As well, if their parents are struggling anyway either individually or as a couple, this also effects the child greatly. Helping children share their feelings and what their unmet needs are can be very effective in beginning their healing process.

My approach with children includes behaviour therapy for young children experiencing behavioural issues at home, school, and within the community. I am currently working towards earning my BCBA and incorporate many behavioural principles into my work and work closely with the child, their family, and any other professionals. I incorporate play/art therapy techniques into my practice with young children to provide a fun, supportive environment in which children can express themselves.

I love working with children!! Children are wired to learn. Often, though, they struggle to communicate their needs, wants and wishes with others in a proper way. Likewise, adults struggle in the same way and/or feel inadequate in coaching their children. Broken communication lines can cause major side effects. This is where I come in. I'm able to connect with most children quit rapidly. I find that whenever children feel understood, they quickly establish a safe bond and share their stories with me. Once this bond is built, most children can't wait to come back to see me for more life coaching/counselling. Parents are always surprised by this.

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.

Tara Koblitz, MSW, RSW, CPT

Registered Social Worker/ Certified Child and Play Psychotherapist

In M1P 4Y1 - Nearby to Stouffville.

As a Certified Child and Play Therapist, working with young children is my area of expertise. Children tend to play out the issues and themes happening in their lives using play instead of words. Virginia Axline, one of the early pioneers in this field, suggested that play therapy “provides an opportunity for the child to ‘play out’ his or her feelings and problems just as, in certain adult therapy, an individual ‘talks out’ his or her difficulties”. By entering their world through play I help children make sense of a sometimes frightening world. I utilize various many tools such as: sandtray, dollhouse, puppets, art supplies, lego, cars, emergency vehicles, and musical instruments.

In M3J 2C4 - Nearby to Stouffville.

Children are our wise masters. They know and see everything, much more than they should. I encourage my young clients to talk about what they are feeling and to feel the feelings in their body, so they learn to trust their instincts. I create a safe, playful, non-judgemental space for children to share, this is done via play therapy such a drawing, sculpting with play dough and acting dress up. I gently encourage young children to talk about their families in order to help them better understand their feelings and emotions.

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!

Having raised children and grandchildren, and working with children in many settings, I offer a place for children to come that is safe, fun and interactive. I believe that the family's involvement in the therapy will best support the child, unless it is unsafe to do so. Children can process through play therapy and art therapy. Other family members are offered suggestions to support the child with their challenges.

In L6A 4M1 - Nearby to Stouffville.

Children do not understand their emotions and that can be difficult for adult caregivers to process. Children need to be taught coping and life skills in order to be equipped to manage their daily stressors. Play therapy is a useful tool in working with children because while they are learning the skills needed they are having fun. Cognitive therapy with children involves helping them gain perspective on what they are feeling.

I work with each child at their own pace, using creative, playful and meaningful strategies to understand and address their emotional and behavioural needs. If appropriate or necessary, I might also incorporate parents/guardians into the therapeutic work. I can also suggest resources and strategies alongside the individual work with the child to assist parents in supporting the child's therapeutic process and personal growth.

In L1N 2R4 - Nearby to Stouffville.

I work with children ages 3+. I use a family approach. Young children's health & behaviour is most closely tied to their relationship with their parents. So therapy sessions are sequenced: fist with parent(s) then with parent & child (together or split time). We focus on 3 main goals, usually: helping each parent feel effective in their parenting style, making the parental unit more cohesive and increasing each individual's tolerance for frustration. This way the family as a system learns from each other how to problem solve together and about to show respect to each other's limits and boundaries. This was the family may grow together without anger, stress and anxiety.

In M4Y 1E1 - Nearby to Stouffville.

Parents bring their young children or adolescents to see me for counselling when they are having severe conflicts with them, when they see that their kids are struggling with school-work or with peer relationships, and when their children are experiencing psychological distress such as anxiety, depression, or difficulty adjusting to change. In all my work, I include the parents as partners in the treatment process.

Psychologist

In M6A 2A1 - Nearby to Stouffville.

I teach parents how to be the primary "therapists" for their children. Although children will sometimes need their own individual counseling, there are times when parents can apply interventions at home that will help children behave better, have fewer tantrums, perform better in school, sleep better, overcome certain fears and phobias, have higher self-esteem and so on. My book "Raise Your Kids without Raising Your Voice" has helped thousands of parents learn techniques to bring out the best in their kids and themselves. In counseling, I address individual challenges that children have and design specific interventions.

Children - like adults - can benefit greatly from psychotherapy, assuming the approach used caters to the unique developmental abilities of children. I use a play-based, fun, and engaging approach for children needing psychotherapy and/or skills training. Parents are part of the process and when working with your child or teen, I will engage you in our work as well so that you can best support counselling and skills training work at home and/or at school. This approach can be very effective for helping children with emotional challenges or behavioral difficulties. Get help today, by contacting me here.

The first session is a meeting with the child's custodial parent(s), to obtain the necessary history and concerns observed or reported. Play therapy is the method used with young children. This involves the use of toys, arts and crafts, and puppet play. Psychoeducational materials, such as books are also included in the sessions as needed. When appropriate, parents will be included in the therapy, as children are encouraged to turn to their primary supports for direction outside of therapy and of course upon the end of counselling.

In L0B 1A0 - Nearby to Stouffville.

Is your child bullied or isolated from others? Is your child reluctant to go to school, has trouble making friends, or seems withdrawn and lonely? Many children have trouble with self confidence, anxiety or social skills. Improving self esteem, emotional regulation, and social skills deficits in the younger years reduces difficulties later. We all want the best for our children, and as a parent myself I know how it can hurt to watch your child suffer and not know how to help. Find out how your child can be helped by in-person counselling, online coaching, or online educational programs.

Do your kid avoid going to school, find it hard to concentrate, feel sad, anxious, or angry, have a hard time socialize with other kids, challenge authorities and break rules all the time? There is always HOPE! I use art and play therapy as well as supportive counselling to help kids express themselves and learn coping strategies to increase their self-esteem, manage their negative emotions, and improve their social skills. After completing counselling, they will be able to achieve better grades and improve relationships with family members, peers and teachers. I also provide training for parents to learn effective parenting skills to manage children's challenging behaviors.

Clinical Counsellor

In L1N 1C4 - Nearby to Stouffville.

I work with young children identified as having learning difficulties, (ADD), (ADHD), oppositional defiant disorder, or antisocial personality disorder. Each child is unique, and presents different needs. My initial focus is on finding the underlying issues contributing to their difficulties. Once these have been identified, I create a plan for resolving the issues of concern. Success is achieved when a child, with appropriate training, is able to adopt strategies for functioning more independently, maintaining more sustained focus and regulating their emotions. As counter-productive patterns are replaced over time, a child will develop new norms in behaviour and outlook.

Registered Clinical Counsellor

In L4L 4Y7 - Nearby to Stouffville.

I have years of experience working with young children (5-12) and their parents. I use a variety of techniques (play therapy, art therapy) to help children process their emotions and learn to express themselves in a healthy manner. I also help children understand (in a developmentally appropriate manner) how to make sense of their anxiety and any possible trauma or event that may have been associated with it. I also work very closely with parents of children as I believe that parents can be the most effective therapeutic ally as they have the greatest source of influence on their young children. I provide parents with tools to understand and effectively communicate with their children.
