Oppositional Defiance Counsellors
All children are oppositional from time to time. But their behavior can become incessantly and openly uncooperative such that it stands out relative to other children. Oppositional Defiant Disorder (or sometimes referred to as "ODD") tends to be evidenced by frequent temper tantrums, excessive arguing with adults, the questioning of rules, active defiance and refusal to comply with adult requests. You may also see deliberate attempts to annoy or upset people, blaming of others, being touchy or easily annoyed by others, frequent anger and resentment, mean and hateful talking when upset, a spiteful attitude and revenge seeking.

These counsellors can help with oppositional defiance in Toronto or provide counselling for parents handling an oppositional defiant kid in Toronto, oppositional defiant teen or oppositional defiant children in Toronto.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Toronto are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counsellor in Toronto you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counselling or couples counselling in Toronto and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counselling in Toronto or family therapy in Toronto.
