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 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.

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!

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.

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 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
