Child and Youth Counselling

We see children and youth of all ages. For our younger clients we generally use techniques such as Play Therapy.  Play Therapy is generally for children ages 3 to 11, play therapy is a form of Counselling that relies on play to help therapists communicate with children and understand their mental health. Because children develop cognitive skills before language skills, play is an effective way to understand a child. The therapist may observe a child playing with toys–such as playhouses and dolls–to understand the child’s behavior and identify issues.
