Counselling Services


Therapy or counselling is the process of working with a trained professional to develop resiliency, positive coping and stress management skills, or to treat mental health issues such as trauma, anxiety, or depression.

The work can include “talk therapy” where history and challenges are explored, old thought patterns are examined, and feelings or experiences are validated. It can also include skill building and resources through the discussion of Mindfulness or Cognitive Behavioural approaches.
