Our Child Counsellors Help Your Child Thrive

Our specialized child counsellors in Langley, BC are dedicated to helping your child overcome problems like trauma, depression, anxiety, and more to help them reach their full potential.

When you have tried everything you can think of to help your child – and it hasn’t worked – seeing a child counsellor is a wise choice.

Many problems tend to get worse over time. Our counsellors can help nip your child’s problems in the bud when they are in their early stages. These problems take a variety of forms, and we are trained to work with children at any developmental stage.

What Is Children Counselling?

Child-focused therapy or counselling focuses on children in their most important developmental years. It can address a variety of issues, including helping to guide children through large life changes, such as adoption, family loss, divorce, and more. This type of therapy can also be used to help children experiencing trauma, anxiety, depression, anger, and more.

Children as young as three can start therapy. Our patient and well-trained counsellors will use a variety of therapy types to meet your child wherever they are in both their problems and their developmental stage. These different types of therapies include play therapy, art therapy, sand tray therapy, and other specialized counselling services.

We also offer teen counselling, which is a type of child therapy offered specifically for adolescents. While many of the principles of children and teenage counselling overlap, your teenage child will likely be facing different types of specific problems and issues.

The Goal of Therapy is to Help Your Child Reach Their Potential During Developmental Years

Early intervention is best when problems arise with children. However, even when problems have progressed to the point where your life feels like it’s in crisis, there is hope.

Here are some of the problems where counselling can help your child:

Aggression with peers or others
Sad, crying a lot
Excessive worry or anxiety
Emotions that are constantly up and down and often extreme
Problems at school
Appearing withdrawn
Sleeping problems or nightmares
Eating problems
Excessive temper tantrums
Not listening to you
Rebellious behaviours
Bullying or being bullied
Socially isolated from peers
Excessive conflict with siblings
Difficulty adjusting to your separation or divorce
Childhood trauma even experienced at a young age
Coping with a huge loss, such as death

Any of the above problems can be challenging to resolve as a parent alone. We also offer parent counselling for those who want extra support during a challenging time.

There is always hope.

It is never too late to solve any problem regardless of what it is. It may take a bit of time and work but, with commitment and courage, you and your family can be happier.
