In L4Z 1S2 - Nearby to Woodbridge.

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.

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.

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.

Teaching and strengthening children's ability to identify feelings and emotions is a building block to emotional intelligence. Emotional intelligence is the ability to be aware, understand, express and manage one's emotions. When children are given a positive space to explore thoughts, feelings and behaviours together with balanced coping strategies, their self-esteem and ability to handle stressful situations increases. Parents and caregivers also need to learn and practice strategies to increase positive communication and connection with their children. Please visit my website to learn more www.jenniferpinto.ca

I place the upmost importance on offering a child a caring, trusting and feel safe environment to open up in. I treat young children ages 4 and up. Every step within the treatment approach that I take is discussed thoroughly before each session with you (parent or guardian/caregiver). Some of the issues you may have as a parent that I work with; anger/mood issues, low self esteem, eating disorder or symptoms, behavioural, anxiety, depression, learning challenges, parents parting ways. Every step within the treatment approach that I take involves you as a parent or guardian/caregiver. It is so important that we work together closely for your child’s health, & happiness & overall well being.

Registered Psychologist

In L6X 0G9 - Nearby to Woodbridge.

At MCCG we offer counselling services that are aimed towards helping young children. Our therapists use different methods to encourage young children to be able to express their difficulties such as play and art therapy. Using these non-direct approaches help children to better discuss their own feelings and feel more comfortable with the process. This allows our therapists to gain insight into the unconscious mind of the child and help them process their emotions.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

In L3T 4X1 - Nearby to Woodbridge.

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.

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 Psychologist

In M4Y 1E1 - Nearby to Woodbridge.

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.

Sarah Chana Radcliffe, M.Ed., C.Psych

Psychologist

In M6A 2A1 - Nearby to Woodbridge.

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.
