Our Counselling Services are short term and during the time they are working with you, our counselors will give you space to talk about what is bothering you and learn new ways of coping.

When you contact our agency, you will be booked for a telephone intake appointment. The Intake Worker will talk to you about why you are looking for counselling and let you know which services might be most helpful for you. The Intake Worker can also provide you with some things to try right away.
