COUNSELLING

Counselling is the foundation of my practice and has been since it began. To appreciate the essence of Children With Differences is to recognize the isolation and confusion that often comes with feeling different from those around you. I have seen the interplay of anxiety and distress that is common between those with having challenges and those who are connected to someone with challenges, whether they be spouses, friends, family, or co-workers. Often, this conflict is a result of a lack of social understanding and the skills necessary to maintain relationships. Therapy becomes a process of helping people understand and accept these differences and learn to work with them. How is this achieved? At Children With Differences, clients can expect:

  • A caring, respectful, experienced registered psychologist

  • A warm, inviting environment

  • Professionalism

  • The option of individual, couple, or family counselling

  • A client centered therapy plan congruent with best practices

  •  Evidence based strategies using cognitive behavioral therapy, solution focused therapy, relaxation techniques, biofeedback, social stories, role playing, scripts

  • A pace that is compatible and appropriate

  • A non-intimidating, stimulating environment for children using stress reducing toys, games, and age appropriate therapy books
