Child Counselling In Surrey, BC

Empowering Resilience

At Love This Therapy, we provide specialized counselling services tailored to meet the needs of children. We understand the distinct milestones, challenges, and big feelings this age group encounters as they mature.

Our mission is to support, guide, and offer evidence-based interventions to help young people smoothly transition through these significant stages of their lives. Our goal is to foster resilience and cultivate emotional and mental well-being.

Committed To Empowering The Youth

Love This Therapy is dedicated to empowering children, and guiding them through life’s various complexities. We strive to instill in them the confidence and skills required to face challenges head-on, promoting mental and emotional growth.

Nurturing Self-Esteem And Identity

Childhood is a time of discovery and development of self-identity. Our counsellors create a safe space for children to explore their emotions, fostering a positive self-image and robust self-esteem. We understand the impact of self-perception on a young individual’s overall well-being and approach this aspect of their development with great care.

Holistic Support Through Grief And Trauma

When children face serious life events such as grief, trauma, divorce, or other family transitions, the emotional toll can be heavy. Our compassionate counsellors are well-equipped to provide sensitive and holistic support through these traumatic events, helping children process their emotions and adapt to new circumstances.

Mental Health In Children

If you notice changes in your child’s behavior, it can be distressing trying to find a solution. Many times, children and young people haven’t developed the communication skills yet to let you know when they might be struggling. Child therapists act as trusted adults who can help guide your young child through the big feelings that they might be experiencing.

Children experience mental health struggles just like adults. Our counsellors are trained in treating all different types of mental health concerns from depression, anxiety, OCD, and anything in between. Even if your child doesn’t seem to be struggling with their mental health, therapy is a great way to teach communication and problem-solving skills that they can use for the rest of their life.

Our Therapeutic Approach

Every child is unique, which is why our counsellors personalize their approach to align with the specific needs and goals of the young person and their family. Our Children’s Counselling services incorporate various evidence-based techniques, including:

This form of talk therapy assists children in understanding the relationship between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. While also building your child’s verbal communication skills and coping strategies to manage behavioural issues and inner feelings.
Play Therapy is a powerful approach, particularly for younger children who may struggle to articulate their feelings verbally. Through play, children can express complex emotions and experiences. This form of therapy also helps children develop better social skills, problem-solving abilities, and promotes a healthier understanding of themselves and the world around them.
A family therapist engages the entire family to address interaction patterns and communication issues that may lead to conflicts and emotional distress. Family therapy allows for every family member to have a safe space to share and discuss family issues in a healthy way. Our goal is to bring families together and to create a harmonious home environment.
Motivating young people to identify their strengths and resources and devise solutions to their challenges and promote positive growth. This counselling process allows young people to learn how to problem solve and cope with emotional issues in a healthy way.
Instructing children how to manage stress, anxiety, and emotional dysregulation through mindfulness practices. By learning these techniques early on, they will be able to use these skills through all of their life transitions and in everyday life.
Expressing our inner thoughts and emotions verbally can be challenging, especially for children. Art therapy is an engaging and creative way for young people to express themselves and delve into their emotions without relying on verbal communication.

The Importance Of Specialized Counselling For Children

Childhood represents critical periods of human development. They are times of rapid growth, learning, and transformation. However, they can also be times of difficulty and struggle. Specialized counselling for children offers a supportive environment that fosters healthy development and helps young people and children learn how to cope with and navigate the challenges they face.

How Counselling Supports Development

Just as adults, children can benefit significantly from counselling. It not only addresses immediate concerns, but also nurtures the development of essential life skills, such as resilience, emotional intelligence, communication, and problem-solving. These skills are the building blocks for future success in relationships, academics, and personal growth.

Tailored Therapeutic Interventions

Our counsellors are highly trained in a variety of therapeutic interventions that are tailored to meet the unique needs of young people. They utilize developmentally appropriate strategies that align with the cognitive and emotional levels of each child. This customized approach ensures that therapy is a productive and comfortable experience, encouraging children to engage actively in the process.

The Long-Term Impact Of Early Intervention

Early intervention through child counselling can have a profound impact on a young person’s life trajectory. When children receive the support they need to manage their emotions, overcome challenges, and build resilience, they are better equipped to navigate future obstacles. This early intervention can help prevent the development of more severe mental health issues and contribute to more positive outcomes in adulthood.

The Role Of Parents And Caregivers

Parents and caregivers play a crucial role in the therapeutic process. Our counsellors work closely with parents and caregivers, providing them with tools and strategies to support their child’s emotional and mental health. This collaborative approach ensures that the benefits of counselling extend beyond the sessions and are reinforced in the home environment.

At Love This Therapy, we firmly believe that every child has the capacity to grow, overcome challenges, and flourish. Our goal is to provide the supportive environment and tools they need to realize their potential. We are passionate about helping young people and their families navigate these formative years.
