More About Collingwood Psychotherapy & Yoga Centre

Youth Therapist

We realize that seeing a youth therapist, especially for the first time, can be a confusing, discomfiting situation for many children and teens. At Collingwood Psychotherapy & Yoga Centre, we work hard to maintain a comfortable, inviting environment where your child will feel able to sit down or go for a walk, talk, and receive support form our highly qualified psychotherapists.

We recognize that regaining and sustaining mental health is an ongoing process that requires a variety of strategies depending on the youth’s life phase and situation. This is why our youth therapists provide a variety of services that allow our patients to maintain their dignity and humanity during every phase of growth and development. We alter our strategy based on every child or teenager’s situation and issues, and we are always here to lend a listening ear and provide helpful guidance.

Having your child or teenager see a youth therapist may be one of the best things you do for their mental health. Set up your appointment today with one of our psychotherapists by contacting our office.

FAQs About Our Therapy Services for Youth

Life is hard, and many children and teens experience difficulties that make it difficult for them to cope, move forward, and thrive. If you are interested in helping your child through a difficult situation through therapy, we have answered some common questions we receive about our practice and approach below.

What ages do you work with?

We work with children of all ages, as well as teenagers. We take a specialized approach when working with our younger clients and customize our processes to meet the needs of this younger client group. We recommend for children 13 and younger that their parent(s) book a session prior to the child being in therapy independently.

How can children & teens benefit from therapy?

Just like adults, traumatic events and difficult situations can result in emotional and mental difficulties for children. By working through these issues with the help of a psychotherapist, children and teens can effectively process difficult events and move forward.

What are the three phases of psychotherapy?
There are three phases in psychotherapy that emerge organically. These include developing a solid relationship with the psychotherapist, working through negative past experiences, and evaluating where you began and where you are now.
What sets your practice apart?
Our practice is made up of psychotherapists who have a great deal of training and experience working with children and teenagers who are exhibiting trauma symptoms and symptoms of immaturity. Our psychotherapists care greatly about the children and teens who seek therapy here and aim to provide compassionate services in a comfortable, friendly environment. We also work closely with parents and caregivers as we believe that they play a very strong role in supporting and enhancing their children’s mental health outcomes through their own personal growth.
How can I set up an appointment for my child?

For children 13 or younger, we ask that the parent(s) book a therapy session first for our therapist to evaluate capacity for your child to continue with therapy independently. Please book your first session through our online booking tool or reach out to us directly. We will then work with you to set up a time that works for you and your child or teen.
