Big changes in life, school troubles, and just wanting to fit in can make growing up a challenging time. Sometimes, these hurdles can make a child feel sad, anxious, or even angry. As these feelings pile up, they may become distant, less playful, or struggle with daily tasks. Sometimes, they just need a bit of help to share their feelings and talk about what’s on their mind. Parenting is the most challenging job in the world. We are here to support both you and your child on your journey.
Growing up isn’t just fun and games. It’s a journey, and just like any adventure, there can be rough patches. Kids, even though they’re young, feel big emotions, and sometimes they don’t know how to talk about them. That’s where child therapy can lend a helping hand.
As a parent, it can be heart-wrenching to see your little one in distress. Child therapy is like giving them a toolbox. Inside, they’ll find ways to understand their feelings, express them, and learn that they can overcome challenges.
School can sometimes be a tough place for kids. Learning new things, making friends, and trying to fit in – it’s all a big deal. Therapy offers all children a safe space to talk about school worries and find fun ways to handle them.
Children with learning or developmenetal disabilities may find school additionally challenging. Children with ADHD might feel like their thoughts are a jumbled puzzle, making focusing a challenge. Those with autism can find the social world of school confusing, and sensory experiences intense. Children with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder often struggle with memory and managing their emotions, turning everyday learning into a complex maze.
These specific challenges, like a restless mind, social confusion, or emotional turbulence, can make the everyday school experience feel like climbing a mountain. Assignments, friendships, and even just the ring of the school bell can trigger anxiety and uncertainty.
At Veritas Psychotherapy and Counselling, we have members of our team specifically trained to help these children untangle their feelings and challenges. Tailored strategies turn ADHD’s restlessness into focused energy. For children with autism, therapy decodes the confusing social signals, and sensory experiences get a bit less overwhelming. Kids with FASD find ways to navigate their emotional world and memory mazes. Every session is a step towards turning school from a challenge into an adventure.
Moving homes, a new sibling, or changes in the family can be confusing for kids. It’s big stuff! Therapy provides them a place to share their feelings and understand that change, even if it’s hard, is a part of life.
Growing up is an adventure, filled with lessons and memories. With a little help along the way, it can be an amazing journey, filled with joy and learning.
We believe that children are valuable and every child should feel heard, understood, and like they have intrinsic worth. In our office, they will find opportunities for:
We confront past traumas and emotional scars, not just to understand them, but to heal and grow from them.
Through therapy, we provide opportunities to develop resilience, empowering your child to step outside of their comfort zones and embrace new challenges.
We model a healthy, loving relationship within the therapy sessions, giving your child a tangible guide to shape and improve their connections outside of therapy.
We start by building a genuine connection with your child, offering a non-judgemental and safe space where they feel heard and understood..
After identifying the root of their challenges, we create a treatment plan, tailoring our approach to your child’s unique needs.
We provide them with tools to address their current challenges and foster healing, empowering them to move forward and lead a fulfilling life.
Signs vary, but if you’ve noticed significant changes in your child’s mood, behaviour, school performance, or social interactions, it might be time to consider therapy. However, even if there aren’t clear “signs,” therapy can be a proactive approach to understanding and addressing potential concerns.
