Hearing your child say "I wish I was never born! I hate you! I wish I was dead!" is one of the most painful experiences as a parent. After hearing this, you decided it was time to find some help for your child and yourself. You thought things were going to get better, but it hasn't and now you're worried that it's only going to get worse. The parental guilt is overwhelming. You're baffled by their big meltdowns and think that they need to learn some skills to cope with their feelings in a better way.
You're looking for a counsellor who can help your child open up, and make sense of their big reactions to events, as well as teach your child some ways to manage these big feelings. Whether it's anxiety, panic or struggles with mood, the play room can help.
Additionally, as a Certified Step Family Counsellor I assist step parents to manage the complicated process of living in a step family. Stop walking on eggshells. Parents who work with me appreciate my straightforward and down-to-earth approach. I offer 24/7 online scheduling, after school appointments, parent support.

Megan Vandersluys's Groups

Friendship Skills for primary school age kids

A small group for children to develop confidence in their social skills, work on friendship skills in the moment with a trained social skills coach. This group is great for kids who are shy and struggle to speak up, as well as for kids with ADHD who forget to wait and need reminders to watch for peer social cues. Group is kept small so everyone gets a chance to participate. Time and Date TBD.
