Child & Youth Counselling

Counselling services provided to children and youth, between the ages 0-16. This service is provided by counsellors who’ve specialized in counselling children and youth. Play-based counselling strategies are primarily used for children ages 2-10, and as needed in the upper years of adolescence (and as developmentally appropriate). The child/youth is the primary client, and the parents are supported along the way, to learn how to best support their child. Play-based counselling is also available for those with developmental delays, and/or adults seeking to resolve childhood issues.

When working with young children, we provide play-based counselling in a space to explore their feelings through familiar items, like paint, play-doh, lego, dolls, picture books, etc. Parents also have the opportunity to learn how to best support their child.

When working with adolescents, we make use of their interests, like music playlists, art, books, videos, journaling, etc.
