We believe in assisting children and adolescents by helping them develop tools for life. We understand that life can bring challenges and may leave young people feeling overwhelmed. Our counsellors will help your child or young adult on their journey of well-being and encourage them to use these challenges as opportunities to further develop their skills for exceptional living. Therapy with children and adolescents from ages 3-17 comprises the majority of our work. Our counsellors are experienced in many child and adolescent issues, such as separation and divorce, anxiety, depression, grief and loss, trauma, attention deficit disorders, bullying, learning disabilities and school phobias. Recognizing that children often communicate through play, we use a variety of expressive therapies such as art, play, sand tray therapy and/or cognitive behaviour therapy. We also offer parenting support and advice and ideas to help your child thrive.
In high conflict divorces there is sometimes the possibility that the children could become distant from one or both parents. At times, therapeutic interventions for the children, as well as their parents, may become necessary. For example, children might find themselves caught up in the middle of the parental conflict and may need outside intervention to move forward. Parent education might also become necessary to understand how the conflict impacts their children, as well as understanding the benefits of having both parents involved in their children’s lives.
The intervention is for parents whose parent-child relationships have been damaged or have become estranged from their children. Our team creates an individualized approach that fits the family’s needs. The goal is to repair the damaged parent-child relationship through reunification counselling, therapeutic activities, and parent education. The therapeutic parenting time approach is flexible, adaptable, and can be custom designed to fit the requirements of specific interventions.
