Therapy for Children

Therapy sessions with children are often very exploratory, play-based and the therapist aims to teach the child tools and fundamentals that are appropriate for their goals and developmental stage. Throughout a child’s therapy journey, we invite parents to be included in the process through Caregiver Check-ins and Consultations. During these, the therapist and caregivers can have a chance to discuss any significant information, updates and reassess goals if needed. It is important for caregivers to know that although we do involve parents in the process, the therapist’s role is to provide 1-on-1 support for the child primarily.

How to start!

Caregivers may be requested to support a 1 hour long intake/initial consult (without the child there) to talk about why they are coming to therapy, history, goals etc. If the parents of a child participant are separated/divorced, then we may require consent from both parents before the child starts their first session.  In this case, please let us know when booking and discuss it further during the consultation. We will request contact information for both parents so we can send the consent form.

“Pausing” your Therapy Journey

Sometimes we need to take a break from therapy for one reason or another. Therapeutic breaks can be useful as it gives individuals the chance to practice their coping skills more independently or explore other fulfilling wellness activities. Just let us know when you may need a break and remember, you can always return to therapy again when you feel ready!

You may be wondering how many sessions you need to book, or when is a good time to discontinue your sessions. This varies from person to person, but please discuss this with the therapist so that they can begin their closure process with the individual. For adult participants this can be a simple conversation but for children or youth they might need more transition time to say goodbye to their therapist especially if they enjoyed working in the space.
