We offer in-person counselling services at our offices in Mississauga, Toronto, and Milton, and offer the convenience of home-visits across the GTA.

Tailored Approach for Young Minds

We understand that children and teenagers have unique needs and developmental considerations. Our therapists utilize age-appropriate therapeutic techniques and interventions to engage and support young minds effectively.

Emotional Regulation and Expression

Child and teen counselling create a safe and non-judgmental space for children and teens to explore and express their emotions. Skilled therapists help them develop emotional regulation skills, enabling them to identify and manage their feelings effectively. By providing a supportive environment, counselling encourages healthy emotional expression, reducing the risk of bottling up emotions and promoting emotional well-being.

Coping Skills Development

Child and teen counselling equip young individuals with practical coping skills to navigate life's challenges. Therapists teach strategies such as relaxation techniques, mindfulness, and problem-solving skills. These coping mechanisms empower children and teens to manage stress, anxiety, and other emotional difficulties, fostering resilience and enhancing their ability to cope with life's ups and downs.

Improved Self-Esteem and Self-Confidence

Child and teen counselling focus on nurturing self-esteem and self-confidence. Therapists help children and teens develop a positive self-image, recognize their strengths, and challenge self-doubt. Through supportive discussions and activities, counselling fosters self-acceptance and empowers young individuals to embrace their uniqueness, boosting their overall self-worth and confidence.

Healthy Relationship Building

Child and teen counselling assist young individuals in developing healthy relationships with peers, family members, and authority figures. Therapists teach communication skills, empathy, and conflict resolution strategies. By improving social interactions, counselling enhances their ability to form meaningful connections, navigate peer dynamics, and foster positive relationships, promoting their social and emotional well-being.

Enhancing Self-Awareness

Anxiety counselling promotes self-awareness, helping individuals recognize and understand their physical and emotional responses to anxiety. Therapists guide individuals in identifying the signs of anxiety, such as increased heart rate or racing thoughts, and help them develop techniques to regulate these responses. By cultivating self-awareness, individuals can intervene early and implement coping strategies, enabling them to manage anxiety more effectively.

Academic and School Support

Child and teen counselling provide support for academic and school-related challenges. Therapists collaborate with students, parents, and teachers to address learning difficulties, improve study skills, and manage school-related stress. Counselling helps young individuals set goals, enhance organizational skills, and develop effective problem-solving strategies, enabling them to succeed academically and fostering a positive school experience.

Identity Exploration and Self-Discovery

Child and teen counselling offer a safe space for young individuals to explore their identity, values, and beliefs. Therapists support them in understanding and accepting themselves, navigating questions about their identity, and building a strong sense of self. Counselling encourages self-reflection, helping young individuals develop a clearer understanding of their strengths, passions, and aspirations.

Coping with Transitions and Life Changes

Child and teen counselling assist young individuals in managing transitions and life changes effectively. Whether it's transitioning to a new school, coping with family changes, or adjusting to developmental milestones, therapists provide support, guidance, and coping strategies. Counselling helps young individuals navigate these transitions, reducing anxiety and promoting adaptability.

Emotional Support and Validation

Child and teen counselling offer a supportive and validating environment for young individuals to express their thoughts and feelings. Therapists provide empathy, understanding, and validation, helping them feel heard and valued. This emotional support can alleviate feelings of loneliness, isolation, and stigma, fostering a sense of belonging and well-being.

I am grateful to have had Shani be a resource and support during a difficult transition in my life. I had enough self-awareness to google 'therapy' and Hatch-Me came up. It was the reviews that led me to finally submit a request to connect with someone, and I met Shani. I understand why he encourages his patients, once we are in a better headspace, to share our experiences here in order to potentially attract other souls searching for support. There is no pressure, but an understanding of how reviews drive awareness - I am here for it. If you are looking for some guidance, support, or a path to a better headspace, I encourage you to check HM out and meet with anyone on the team. Shani - you are an angel. You provided appropriate therapeutic support and relevant guidance to me during a dark time in my life. Your dedication is unparalleled. You are so accommodating, work around my timings, when I'm late, hungry or when I am in a situation where I need a call or text - you do your best to be there, and you are. It tells me that you actually care about me, my wellbeing, and you want to see me thrive. I hope I am fortunate enough to know you forever. I can assure you I will continue to visit HM whenever I need to kick my negative thoughts in the 'behind'and focus on budling the life I know I deserve because, I Love myself enough to try a little more each day. Thank you for that. From my experience, Shani is patient, but he will also confront your thought patterns when needed. He will support you with reassurance and also challenge you to move outside of a comfort zone. He will be clear and forthright about what one needs to do (unique to them) for overall health and wellbeing. If you care and love yourself enough to want to make some positive changes in your headspace, I encourage you to make an appointment. I can assure you, you won't regret it. Thank you again Hatch-Me and Thank you always Shani. Love, an exposed Gill.

The best therapists around. My entire family has felt heard and supported. Shani is the best therapist/guide we’ve ever had. Other therapist are full of themselves and the advice they give is right off of google. Shani is direct and the way he breaks concepts down is just brilliant. We found our therapist for life.
Shani's incredible! He's very patient and understanding.
Very helpful and is very patient when things aren't going as smooth as they should be. Been a long time coming and I'm glad I started.

When you’re in a big city, it’s hard to find services that are incredibly professional, custom tailored to your needs AND leave you feeling hopeful. Hatch-Me’s approach to their services are heart-centred and personable, with exceptionally prompt and clear communication. Cassidy is a gem. Walk in with some trepidation and walk out feeling so very loved and cared for. My first ever cuddle session healed layers of my heart, gave me space to speak my truth about past hurt, and was welcomed by a compassionate and empathetic soul who gave me the confidence to continue healing myself. I am deeply grateful, thank you.
