Counselling Services for Children & Adults

Counselling For Children and Adults

Counselling-Kids

Counselling services for children and youth are helpful to those children/youth and their families experiencing social, relationship, emotional, behavioural, thinking or other psychological difficulties that impact their daily lives or development.

We work with children from age 4 through to adulthood. The treatment plan developed will depend on your child’s age, understanding, and engagement in the counselling process. Parents are expected to be involved and supportive of their child’s progress.

The following are some examples of the issues that our younger clients address when they engaged in counselling:

  • Angry or confusing thoughts or behaviour
  • Anxiety
  • Attachment
  • Attention
  • Activity levels
  • Difficulty with persons in authority
  • Expressing themselves individually or in a group
  • Getting along with adults and/or friends
  • Grief and loss
  • Impulsiveness
  • Learning difficulties or academic problems
  • Listening to or following direction or instruction
  • Communication difficulties
  • Depression
  • Development problems
  • Opposition/defiance
  • Sadness
  • Shyness
  • Thoughts of harm to self or others
  • Listening to or following direction or instruction
  • Opposition/defiance
  • Sadness
  • Shyness
  • Worries that won’t go away

Depending on the age of the client we utilize a combination of expressive techniques, play therapy, and cognitive behavioural therapy when counselling children and youth. In addition, we offer expertise to parents who are concerned about the best ways to support their children/youth and who are seeking new approaches to manage emotional and behavioural issues.

Counselling-Adolescent

Adolescent counselling is appropriate for concerns regarding school performance, social, behavioural or emotional issues. Each client is a unique individual and will be treated as such. Sessions are geared toward understanding each client’s capacity to provide personal input into the treatment modality that meets their needs. Brief solution focused, narrative, and cognitive behavioural therapies are treatment methods that are available.

Parents continue to be involved in the treatment process. As age increases, adolescents often desire more independence. The strategies and treatment goals will depend on the adolescent’s understanding and motivation and will reflect their growing self-sufficiency.

Counselling-Adult

Adult counselling is most often a dynamic collaborative process that allows the client to develop skills and strategies to manage problems without counselling in the future. We work with clients suffering from depression, anxiety, trauma, stress, health concerns, workplace problems, marital and family problems.
