Integrate Health Services supports children, youth and adolescents who may have social, emotional or behavioural difficulties. We will meet with clients and their parent(s)/guardian(s) to address concerns and to determine counselling goals during the first sessions. Counselling strategies will then be personalized to address the needs of each client and their family. Our therapists utilize creative approaches to effectively engage with younger clients such as art and play therapy activities. At Integrate Health Services, our therapists balance the need for clients to have a “safe” space to engage in self-expression, develop confidence and skills, while also focusing on addressing parental goals and concerns. Therapists will often “integrate” parents/guardians into parts of the sessions or provide individual sessions to parent(s)/guardian(s) to ensure that they are aware of skills being developed in sessions and to introduce strategies that they can utilize at home to reinforce these skills.
