Child Counsellors
Child psychologists in Ottawa provide help with child development and child education.

Every comprehensive review of therapy with children shows that all credible approaches, when performed well by a well-trained provider, produce almost the same results. About half of all kids will get better. Of those that improve, 80% will show progress in a relatively short time (likely in fewer than six sessions), the remaining 20% will need longer-term support.

The best child therapists in Ottawa build great relationships with the child and the parent. They also sees the child's strengths and are open to hearing the child's possible solutions to the challenges the child faces. Finally, a good therapist appreciate the child's culture and is sensitive to the values of the child's community.
