CHILDREN AND YOUTH COUNSELLING

Research reveals that children and youth rely more heavily on their behaviour than anything else to communicate, create safety, and maintain a sense of dignity. The risk(s), of course, are that adults assess behaviour and that these assessments frequently produce a diagnosis. If the context from which youth are responding is not understood, their behaviour will very likely be misunderstood as well. This becomes particularly true in situations of violence and adversity, where maintaining safety and dignity requires the skill of caution and the careful assessment of all interactions. We work with children and youth from all backgrounds, and in the context of all living situations with the inclusion of the people/family members surrounding them.

EATING DISORDER COUNSELLING

We work with individuals, families, youth, and couples to understand the suffering and impact that challenges with one’s body image can bring. Eating disorders can be attributed to many things; societal pressures, traumatic experiences, social responses, and/or genetic influence. In order to achieve optimal health we work to invite understanding and connection to those suffering with their relationship to food, their bodies, and the impact of social and personal expectations.
