As a therapist, I practice "talk therapy". For children to participate or benefit from counselling or family counselling with me, it requires them to have a level of education and maturity which enables them to understand basic conversation and benefit from talking. Some young children who are shy or not confident in speaking with adults may be better benefited from another therapeutic modality offered by other practitioners such as art therapy or play therapy. That being said I have worked quite effectively with a number of precocious young children who have enjoyed talking with me.

Parenting your children is one of the most challenging and rewarding jobs. As much as all parents want best for their children, it is not always easy. With years of experiences working with parents and children and adolescents over the issues of mis-behaviour in the home, sibling rivalry, bullying, low self-esteem, peer pressure, school failure, truancy, drug issues, etc., I am here to offer a road map with practical, hands on guidance, such as: setting structure in the home, increasing efficient parenting skills, and how to talk to kids so that they listen.

We were all there once upon a time and can you put yourself back in those shoes? Children change as they grow and we need to grow as well as parents. We need to develop ourselves in the ways we understand our kids otherwise they can out grow us, leading to issues outside of our scope and capability. Ideally we can grow faster in parenting skills knowledge and understanding than our kids do!

Finding a therapist for a young child is difficult; you want to find the right fit for your family as well as someone your child can connect and feel safe with. When working with children, rapport (the trust in the therapeutic relationship) is at the core of healing. I take the time needed to develop this rapport during my first introduction with your child, using targeted expression therapy to get to the root of his/her concerns. This often involves talking or drawing pictures of feelings and giving a name to the 'problem'. I also practice within a strict family integration approach, building the core strengths of your family while working alongside your child on the path to wellness

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.

Therapy for adolescents can improve the quality of life at home and have a significantly positive impact on the process of becoming an adult. When your adolescent has emotional or behavioral problems, a common thing you might hear from family members is “he/she will grow out of it with time”; sometime they do and sometime not. I strongly encourage families not to take their adolescents lightly by starting them with early sessions. They will get the necessary coping mechanisms that they will need to utilize in challenging times. Many parents visit my office for the first time feeling helpless and worried as to whether they are doing the right things, they are concerned things are getting from bad to worse. I’ve helped adolescent fine-tune their balance so...(view profile to read more)

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.

Children are a delight to work with. I love creating with children through art and then finding ways for them to express their story through the process. I work with children from about age 7 or 8, as I am not a play therapist and I do not have play therapy specific training (play therapy is generally seen as a preferred method with younger children). However I will help a child or teenager have a special space just for themselves to express themselves as they need. I have worked with children and teens around grief and loss, anxiety, parental separation, and abuse within the family.

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.

Clairelise Folch, MA, RP, OACCPP

Certified Counsellor and Registered Psychotherapist

In L5B 3C1 - Nearby to Woodbridge.

Children learn by trial, error and parental guidance, and when faced with new situations or expectations, emotions will surface as a normal reaction. Young children have limited communication skills, and often a temper tantrum is the only means to communicate that they need help. However, when severe emotional symptoms develop into an unhealthy pattern, parents should seek professional help. As an Expressive Arts therapist, I enter the child's world of emotions and thinking through play, art and music. Children love to play. It is their language of communication. Let me offer you my help to explore goals, solutions, coping skills and support for your child. 905-842-3626
