I help parents deal with young children in a way that brings more loving and acceptance into their family. I often ask, what is your young child trying to tell you by his or her acting out or misbehaviour or intense emotions. In this way, we can explore together how the child's needs can be met in more positive ways, and how you can model more helpful behaviour and feelings to the child.

Whereas I do not see young children in person in my practice I can be of assistance with many parenting issues. These may involve questions about raising and disciplining and motivating your children. You may be coping with issues concerning the impact of divorce , separation and remarriage on your children. Blending families can introduce difficult child raising and couple issues for you. Please contact me for experienced, practical and understanding help.

It is always a pleasure working with young children and their families. Working in collaboration with parents, I help children understand their experiences and develop strategies for coping with life situations. When appropriate, part of my role is helping parents sort out how to best support their children's development. I have seen children for a number of concerns including separation and divorce, death of a parent, anxiety, trauma, and behaviour issues.

Registered Social Worker and Certified Canadian Counsellor

550-2950 Douglas St., Victoria, BC V8T 4N4

Using my unique approach, I work with young children within the context of their family's involvement to work towards the goals they have identified. My approach allows young children and their families identify the issues of concern and apply the use of consequences and environmental accommodations as the primary ways to address those issues. Consequences and environmental accommodations provide opportunities for young children and their families to experience safe, age appropriate and effective ways to address their issues of concern.

Registered Clinical Counsellor

3025 Shakespeare St, Victoria, BC V8R 4H6

Through my work with families and children, I have observed their unique ability to cope and manage despite stress and conflict around them. However, they often require help to find alternate coping strategies and skills to better equip them in their navigation of the world. Working with issues such as: boundaries, self-efficacy, self-image, assertiveness, emotional expression, divorce/separation , re-partnering, or other family dynamics, and anxiety can truly change their ability to handle diversity as they continue to age. Children are inherently resilient. Counselling can help them apply the raw materials they possess to later become well-adjusted teens and adults.

Erin Laird, MA, RCC

Registered Clinical Counsellor

201-1600 Bay Street, Victoria, BC V8R 2B6

With the exception of abuse or extreme attachment trauma, the support I can provide for young children is directed at the parents. As young children are rarely in control of their environments, and are unlikely to have developed the appropriate Executive, Language, Emotional Regulation, Cognitive Flexibility or Social Skills for talk therapy (even augmented with play, art and music), parents are supported in collaboratively working to help develop these skills in their children, instilling perceptions of capability, purpose and significance, and personal power. Parents are encouraged to be kind and firm, emphasizing respect and connection.

Child Counselor

Patti Langlais, MA, RPC, CCHt

Registered Professional Counsellor

Online Therapist / Coach

Children are resilient. They have an amazing way of adapting to change in the world around them. When a child has lost their ability to adapt or is no longer able to cope and manage their world, a multitude of behaviors can manifest. This can be scary and frustrating for the parent or caregiver and can be equally difficult for the child. We understand and appreciate the struggles that children face today and how challenging parenting can be. We will work together to uncover the underlying issues and recreate harmony for both the child and/or parent. In a warm and understanding environment we will use a variety of techniques, customized to your child'd individual needs.

Children are remarkably sensitive to their environments, particularly to what is going on for their parents. Often, when a child is acting out or seems troubled somehow, it is a reflection of what is going on at home. Young children do not yet have the capacity to put into words what their needs and feelings are. For this reason, in therapy I use various types of play and art activities to decipher what children are experiencing and may need from their caregivers. I work closely with children's caregivers to help them gain insight into what their children feel and need. I assist the caregivers to develop secure attachment bonds with their children.
