Counselling for Children

Counselling for Children may look different from other counselling, as often times family members are involved in the counselling process. Child Counselling is tailored to your unique family situation and family needs. Family members are welcome to be involved in the process. Child Counselling will be suited to your child's needs based on the area's they are struggling with. Counselling will include a mix of play therapy and talk therapy. 

Kinds of Therapy 

Play Therapy 

Play Therapy is a form of therapy often used with children, as often children have difficulty expressing emotions and feelings. Play Therapy can help the therapist gain insights and knowledge of what a child is dealing with, as well as, explore emotions, process feelings, and find new ways to cope and work on behaviours. Play Therapy may also be included in Family Therapy

Therapy Location

Talk Therapy

Talk therapy will look like talking to a therapist, either one on one with the child or with the parent present. Different therapy techniques and styles would be applied to the conversations, as the therapeutic feels would be helpful based on the child's unique problem, preferences and personality. Talk therapy can also be offered with Family Therapy.

Who We Help

Family Therapy

Family Therapy for Families who have children, ages 2- 12 years old is offered either in person in Burlington, Ontario or virtually with our online secure program called Jane App.


Family therapy may look like; seeing the child alone, seeing the parents alone, and seeing the family together. You and your counsellor will decide together what will be most helpful for your family based on the issue you are seeking support with. 

Jessica Bomben offers family counselling both in person or online for families with children under 12 years old. Please book online or contact us to get started!
