Finding a Child Therapist in Toronto.

We keep hearing from parents that finding a child therapist in Toronto can be a stressful experience.  The common complaint is that many child therapists in Toronto are too expensive or don’t offer child-friendly services or interventions. At Positive Kids, our position is that while counseling is great, young children find the structure and environment uninviting and even scary at times.  This is one of the reasons we designed our program as a hybrid of counseling, school and recess.  We’ve carefully designed our programs to be sensitive to the needs of young people by taking into account the setting, the attire of the professionals, the curriculum and the structure of the training. Children get to learn critical social and emotional skills in a child-friendly environment with peers their own age.   As a result, children feel right at home.  The counseling goal is achieved – in spite of the fact it wasn’t traditional counseling.  Whether your child struggles with Aggression, depression, anxiety or low self-esteem, they will only benefit from learning they enjoy and that is the goal of Positive Kids.

The competencies of Positive Kids include the following: Self-Management, Self-Awareness, Social Awareness, Responsible Decision-making, and Relationship skills.   Many kids who attend our program are everyday kids that could benefit from increased social and emotional skills.  As specialists in the field, there’s ample evidence to support that EQ (emotional intelligence), the focal point of our program is a greater predictor of adult success that IQ (academic subjects).

Finding a Child therapist in Toronto no longer needs to be a daunting experience. The child therapists that work at Positive Kids are all registered psychotherapists working alongside Child and Youth workers.  All our therapists and youth workers have specialized training in working with children’s emotional and social issues.  Our Social-Emotional learning programs are targeted directly at teens and children and we pride ourselves on this unique offering.  If you would like to a free 15-minute consultation with one of our Child therapists, call us today!

Positive kids is a national provider of Social and Emotional learning, primarily catering to young people. When you call into our organization, we can help you to find a Positive Kids provider near you.

Your child will be assessed on what goals you are trying to achieve. For instance,

  • Does you child struggle with aggression?
  • Do you want your child to have better self esteem?
  • Does you child battle with anxiety and fear in social situations?
  • Does your child simply have difficulty expressing themselves?

These are just a sample of the questions our child therapist may ask you.  Once you decide to move forward, your child will be placed in a group of likeminded children looking to achieve the same goals.
