Online Parenting Counselling

Being a parent is hard. You constantly wonder if you are doing enough, if you're making the right decisions and if your child is going to be okay.

 

All the while life is changing and throwing you curveballs, your children are growing faster than you can imagine, and you are trying to roll with the punches as best as possible. 

At the Journey Counselling and Psychotherapy, we hear you. Our parenting therapists are parents too. If you are looking for a family counsellor, a therapist for your teen or parenting support for yourself, you've come to the right place. First we will look at your family needs and try to provide some immediate relief with coping mechanisms. Then we will assess what needs to be tweaked or changed to set you up for future success.  

If you are ready to take the first step on your journey, reach out to us today. Our Care Coordinator will provide a free consultation to match you with the best therapist on our team.

At the Journey Counselling and Psychotherapy, our approach to Child, Teen and Family Therapy is unique and tailored to your family.

It can be overwhelming to figure out where to start. This isn't just about you. It's about the people you love and care for most on this planet. Our goal is to make beginning therapy as easy as possible for you. During our free consultation call you will sit down with our Care Coordinator who will collect all your thoughts and concerns and create you a road map, matching you with the therapist that is best suited to your needs and helping you with the first steps.

 

When you are ready, you can book a consultation here, or fill out the contact form at the bottom of this page. 

During your first sessions, your therapist will help establish some boundaries to ensure you feel safe and comfortable in your session. If you are coming alone at first or with your family, your therapist will help to establish some goals for therapy and walk you through the best structure of sessions for your success.

Some times of interventions that can help with family therapy include:

  • Cognitive Behvaioural Therapy 

  • Solution - Focused 

  • Narrative 

  • Transgenerational 

 

We firmly believe that therapy is only successful when you find the right therapist. It is our commitment to you, to ensure you feel safe and supported throughout the process. If you have any questions about how online help for you or your family may work, please contact us. We’re here to help.

Parenting Help in Ontario FAQs

Should my teen be in therapy?

Teenagers are in a constant state of change. Between hormones, interpersonal relationships, school and life directions, they've got a lot on their plate. 

Therapy can help teens:

  • Develop better emotional regulation

  • Strengthen communication skills 

  • Identify core values 

  • Choose a career or life path

  • Transition through life milestones 

  • Discuss personal or family trauma 

  • Navigate through depression, anxiety or grief 

  • Build self-esteem and self- worth

 

If you think your teen would benefit from some support in any of the above areas, reach out to us today to learn more.

What is Parenting Counselling?

Seeking therapy as a parent doesn't mean you are failing or doing it wrong. Parenting is hard work. Just when you think you've gotten it right with one child, your other child will throw you a curveball. 

Parenting counselling can help:

  • Create better communication in the home

  • Help you identify your needs and care for yourself before reacting to your child 

  • Navigate behavioural issues or challenges with your children

  • Develop a co-parenting plan with your spouse or your child's other guardian

  • Plan ahead to prevent difficult situations from developing

  • Encourage positivity and develop a healthy system for rewarding or punishing behaviour

Will Family Therapy Help?

Sometimes it is hard to determine if you want individual therapy or if your family should come together.

 

If you have young children perhaps try coming to therapy individually or with your co-parenting partner first. Your therapist will help you to identify if you should include your children. 

If your children are older, try coming to therapy as a group first. Again your therapist will help you to identify the best path for treatment. This may include several individual sessions for each member of the family as well as some sessions altogether. 

Your sessions will look different depending on your needs and goals for therapy. 

How do we find the best therapist for us?

Finding a therapist for teens or families can be quite difficult. At the Journey Counselling and Psychotherapy we have a team of therapists who will work collaboratively with you and your family to identify your needs and support you the best way possible. 

We have several therapist who specialize in working with children, teens and families as well as parents individually. Our Care Coordinator will help you identify your best first steps during your consultation call.
