Service Descriptions

Individual (Adult) Counselling

Counselling provided to an individual aged 16+ regarding any personal or mental health issues. Issues may include stress & burnout, compassion fatigue, depression, anxiety,  bipolar disorder, borderline personality disorder, grief, trauma, interpersonal violence, coping with changes in life, post-partum depression, post-partum anxiety phobias, adjusting to career changes/retirement, separation/divorce, blending families, co-parenting, and much more. We will help you discover your strengths, solve problems, and develop healthy coping strategies to deal with life’s challenges.

Child & Youth Counselling

Counselling services provided to children and youth, between the ages 0-16. This service is provided by counsellors who’ve specialized in counselling children and youth. Play-based counselling strategies are primarily used for children ages 2-10, and as needed in the upper years of adolescence (and as developmentally appropriate). The child/youth is the primary client, and the parents are supported along the way, to learn how to best support their child. Play-based counselling is also available for those with developmental delays, and/or adults seeking to resolve childhood issues.

When working with young children, we provide play-based counselling in a space to explore their feelings through familiar items, like paint, play-doh, lego, dolls, picture books, etc. Parents also have the opportunity to learn how to best support their child.

When working with adolescents, we make use of their interests, like music playlists, art, books, videos, journaling, etc.

Family Counselling

Counselling services provided to families. In these sessions, we spend time learning each family member’s point of view, and then we support communication between family members to gain a better understanding of each other’s perspectives, so everyone can work together to find solutions.

How to get started

Life doesn’t seem to give us the time to manage everything, so let’s make the time, together in our sessions.
