Kylie Howard Clinical Counsellor

1295 North Service Road, Burlington, ON L7R 4M2

In my work with young children, I believe in making each session engaging and meaningful in order to help the client get the most out of their therapeutic sessions. Depending on the presenting issues, I work to utilize art and play based strategies geared towards the age and developmental level of the client. I strive to make counselling fun so that children are excited to come and learn new skills or strategies that will help them in their individual growth and development. Along with offering individual services to young clients, I also work alongside parents and caregivers to assist them in implementing strategies within the home environment to support the young person.

Growing up can often bring forth many difficulties, especially when it is so difficult to explain what it is that is bothering you. In therapy with children, I focus on creating a positive environment with children in which they are able to share with me what it is that they like or enjoy doing, and believe me everyone has something they like, to help expand their understandings of themselves and move past the difficulties they are experiencing in the moment. It has been my experience in working with children that they have all of the tools and abilities to help themselves, but they sometimes just need someone who can help them figure out what to do with their tools and abilities.

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.

Working with younger children as a parent requires a lot more than love. Children communicate most of their needs in nonverbal methods that can be mistaken for stubbornness, defiance, shyness, anger, hate, etc. They are yet to develop more complex ways of communicating feelings and needs. The ideal way to working with younger children is to gain an understanding of the needs that lie behind a specific behaviors and finding ways to redirect that energy.
