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.

I have taken some wonderful classes by Nancy Reidel-Bowers, known for her contributions to the world of family and child play therapy. We learned in depth knowledge about child development, and applied that to relevant tools of therapy to engage the child at their level. Creative approaches: sand tray work with miniature figurines, music, drama, clay, art, painting, games, and so on. I played Wii video games for an entire session with a client once. He talked and laughed more than I had ever heard before; it was a beautiful moment in our relationship and in his therapy moving forward. I look forward to working with you and your child.

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

Your child is behaving poorly, and you're at the end of your rope. Perhaps they're struggling in school, fighting with their peers, or causing stress in your home. At Woodstock Therapy, I work with parents and children to identify the underlying causes of struggles that are common to children, and support parents in making the necessary changes to live a harmonious life with their kids. By collaborating together, your child will learn valuable ways to communicate and manage big emotions, while parents will support the child by encouraging new coping skills and behaviour management techniques. Call Melanie at Woodstock Therapy today if you're ready to get support, and live harmoniously.

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!

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.

I have worked with parents and children for more than 15 years, and recognize that each family, and each child is unique. Children and their families need to be understood in order to best help out. While at times the resolution can come from working with the child, often, working also, or even just, with the parents can be most successful. I value the parent/child bond, and see the purpose of counselling as to strengthen that bond, not come between it!
