You love your children, want the best for them and have probably tried different strategies already.

Still, you might be wondering why your child is struggling.


Play and expressive therapy offers a warm and engaging space for children to express themselves.

Working Together

Counselling sessions are targeted to every family as children's needs are unique. However, in general we propose the following:

Intake session with caregivers: we discuss your concerns, goals for therapy, and brainstorm new strategies to try at home or at school.

Working with children: weekly 50-minute sessions are recommended as children need time to develop trust, get to know the environment and process what brought them to counselling.

Debrief with caregivers: after having worked with your child we meet to discuss how to best support him or her. We identify strengths and areas of growth and collaborate on ideas to continue helping your child grow and develop.

After Counselling, See Your Child:
  • Better regulating emotions and behaviour

  • Increased sense of control

  • Relating better with friends Increased self-confidence

  • Expressing anger in a safer way

  • Solving problems and trying different solutions

  • Adjusting to changes in the environment
