Individual Therapy

Individual therapy provides a supportive, attunded relationship between you and your therapist, where you can express your inner experience. These meetings are confidential, and the focus is on working with you to acheive your goals.

Play Therapy

Through play therapy, a child is given psychological distance from their problems, allowing them safety to express their thoughts and feelings, process their current struggles, experiment with different roles and endings, and learn emotional regulation and problem solving skills. In order to accomplish this, the therapist may introduce the child to various modalities including; storytelling, puppets, dramatic play, music, dance, sand play, art, board games, and sensory play (Axline, 1947; Carmichael, 2006; Landreth, 2002).

Therapeutic Support Counsellor 

A Therapeutic Support Counsellor (TSC) is a trauma-informed professional trained in many different therapeutic approaches to work with children, youth, and families in home, in the community, and in office. This work is completed under the supervision of a Registered Psychologist. 

The role of the TSC is to connect with the child or youth providing therapeutic life-space and community-based interventions. The TSC will also work with the child, youth, and/or family to ground in to and connect with their individual strengths and resources. The goal of these interventions is to begin to increase self-efficacy, building emotional regulation skills, and find the roots of anxiety and depression.

TSCs are also able to work with parents and caregivers to bring information and hands-on support, with regard to therapeutic, relational parenting and being a co-regulator for their child or youth. These supports, resources, and teachings will help to reduce the need for the TSC as the caregiver and child or youth build their abilities, connection, and confidence.

Although this support is therapeutic it is not therapy.

NEUROFEEDBACK

Neurofeedback is a non-invasive training technique that measures a person’s brainwaves and provides real-time feedback about how the brain is functioning. It’s a type of biofeedback that works with the brain and nervous system to help calm and regulate. Training can increase resilience by creating a relaxed calm in the body while also helping to achieve other goals.
