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 often work with parents to help them with their young child's problems. When parents learn more effective parenting strategies, they are able to effect major improvements in their child's behaviour and well-being. Children often benefit from not being identified as patients. However, each case is unique. Sometimes a young child does need psychotherapy. I work with each family to find the right approach for them. Common problems include sleep and eating issues, tantrums, unwillingness to attend school, phobias, self-destructive behaviours, depression, and bullying. I help parents become more competent, decreasing the need for future psychotherapy and improving family relationships.

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

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.

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!
