Compassionate Counselling for Children & Teens in Barrie, ON, and Surrounding Areas
Growing up comes with an array of challenges and complex emotions. At Sweet Spot Family Counselling in Barrie, Ontario, we provide supportive counselling for children and teens experiencing difficulties with self-confidence, social situations, and major life changes. Our goal is to equip children and teens with coping skills to navigate their lives and handle their emotions healthily and positively.
Signs Your Child or Teen May Need Support
Children often express their emotions through actions rather than words. If your child or teen is experiencing distress in their daily life, you may notice behaviours such as:
- Sibling and peer conflict
- School avoidance
- Increased conflict with parents
- Withdrawal from friends and family
- Extreme moodiness
- New fears or increased anxiousness
- Engagement drug use or criminal activity
Our therapists work closely with children and teens to improve emotional regulation and self-confidence. We can help young people with the following through our counselling for children and teens:
- Test anxiety
- Confidence building
- Family struggles
- Peer issues
- Social anxiety
- Overall well-being
Our behavioural therapy acknowledges children’s emotions, validates their feelings, and provides them with the tools they need to feel good about themselves.
Specialised Support for ADHD
Children and teens with ADHD often experience stress and low self-esteem. Our therapists can support children and teens with ADHD and provide them with effective strategies to manage difficulties associated with hyperactivity, inattentiveness, and impulsivity.
Family Counselling and Co-Parenting Support
Parenting doesn’t come with an instruction manual (although we wish it did). And while families provide support and love, they can also face challenges. That’s when neutral, supportive guidance can make a significant difference. Sweet Spot Family Counselling offers family counselling services to help families improve communication and cope with stress.
In addition, we provide co-parenting support services for families navigating divorce. Our therapists can help create thoughtful plans that prioritize the well-being of the child(ren) and reduce conflict.
