Areas We Treat

Does your child or teen feel a sense of restlessness or find it difficult to stay focused on tasks? Are they forgetful, distracted, or struggling with time management or organization?

ADHD can be debilitating and impact your child’s ability to function day-to-day. It can affect all areas of life: social, academic, and family. Our assessment and therapy services can help your child gain practical skills and learn strategies to manage their symptoms.

Does your child or teen experience intense anger or have difficulty controlling their temper?

Anger is a normal human emotion. However, if your child’s temper is leading to conflicts in their relationships, problems at school, or social issues, they may benefit from support. Our therapy services offer a supportive environment to help children and teens understand the causes of their anger and develop healthy coping strategies.

Is anxiety keeping your child or teen from living a happy and fulfilled life?

Anxious symptoms can include excessive worry, dread, or fear and can cause muscle tension, sweating, physical pain, and trouble sleeping. Therapy can help your child manage their anxiety using effective strategies so they can gain control and feel relief.

Is your child or teen displaying behaviours that are disruptive or challenging at home, at school, or in social settings?

Behavioural challenges can include oppositional behaviour, aggression, severe tantrums, impulse control and conduct difficulties. These behaviours can contribute to stressful home environments and hinder a young person’s ability to form healthy relationships. Recognizing and addressing these behaviours early is crucial. Through targeted assessments and therapy, we offer a supportive space for your child or teen to learn effective coping strategies.

Has your child or teen lost interest or enthusiasm in previously enjoyable activities?

Depression can present as feelings of sadness, hopelessness, and a lack of energy or interest in activities that were once fun. Physical symptoms can include changes in appetite, fatigue, and trouble sleeping. Depression can leave your child feeling isolated and alone. Through therapy, your child or adolescent will gain an understanding of why they feel the way they do. They will learn effective strategies for improving mood, increasing motivation and developing a greater sense of hope and well-being.

Does your child or teen have trouble managing their emotions, experiencing extreme reactions to what might seem like minor events?

Emotional dysregulation can present as sudden bouts of anger, intense frustration, overwhelming sadness, or unpredictable mood swings. These emotional responses can feel uncontrollable and out of proportion, leading to difficulties in relationships, school performance, and overall well-being. Our assessment and therapy services can help you and your child understand why they are experiencing challenges with emotion regulation. At Kingsway Psychological & Behavioural Services, we help your child learn effective ways to regulate their emotions using an evidence-based approach.

Does your child or teen experience intrusive and unwanted thoughts, images, or urges? Do they engage in repetitive behaviours or rituals?

With OCD, people feel compelled to perform repetitive behaviours despite knowing that their thoughts are irrational. This can result in feelings of guilt, shame, and anxiety.

Our therapy services can help your child manage their obsessions and compulsions, explore and rework their thought patterns, and learn coping skills. Book an appointment or request a free consultation to get started.

Does your child or teen have very high expectations of themselves and constantly strive for perfection? Are they overly self-critical and worried about how they will be perceived by others?

Setting unrealistic standards and aiming for perfection can be exhausting and overwhelming. It can impact your child’s self-esteem and result in anxiety, depression, obsessive-compulsive behaviours, or burnout.

Therapy can help your child gain control of their perfectionistic tendencies, set more realistic goals, and increase self-compassion.

Does your child or teen experience fear or self-consciousness in social situations?

Social anxiety can cause them to worry excessively about being judged by others, feel nervous, self-conscious, and embarrassed. It can lead them to avoid social situations altogether. Therapy can help your child identify and challenge negative thought patterns and beliefs that contribute to social anxiety. We can help them develop a more positive and confident self-image.
