Parents & Caregivers

Invest in Your Kids 


We can imagine that this might be an uncertain time for you. You know your child is struggling and want to help them. You've  tried the things that have worked in the past, but its not helping this time. You may come to realize that you need some professional help-and that's okay!


We believe you are doing the best you can with the knowledge you have. It's not possible to be be EVERYTHING ALL THE TIME for your child. That's where we come in-we have studied child and youth development and LOVE working with kids, So, you can feel safe temporarily passing the reins to us. You want the best for your child and so do we! Our alliance and collaboration will be very important as we move through the counselling process.

Parent-Counsellor Alliance


We are very compassionate and non-judgemental therapists and are here to support you. We provide objectivity that many parents can't while emersed in the parent-child relationship. Therapists at Kindred Counselling have significant knowledge in child and youth development and have been working with children and youth for many years.

Although we do not do individual counselling with parents/guardians, or traditional family therapy, we can refer you to another clinician or support program if you feel you are in need of those services. There are many therapists and family counsellors in the field that specialize in this area if you are seeking your own support.


Parents/caregivers play an important role in the counselling process, as they are an integral part of the child's world and have much more influence than the therapist. Therefore, it is important for parents/guardians to support their child throughout their therapy process to maximize therapeutic results.


We also believe self-care for you is important. Often times we are too hard on ourselves and do not allow time for personal care. We often “should” ourselves. “I should have done this; I should have said that”. Beating yourself up is not helpful for you or your child. Be gentle with yourself and prioritize your needs the way you likely do with so many others.
