Individual counselling is an opportunity to sit one on one with a trained counsellor to talk about the things that are important to you. It is a growth, healing process with the ultimate goal to help people recognize and accept their own internal worth and their learned behaviors to be congruent with who they really are. Counselling affects change.

Our goal is to provide an open, supportive, and confidential environment for you to address the issues that are concerning you. Counsellors can assist with anxiety and depression, grief and loss, trauma and abuse, addictions and spiritual issues. Counsellors use a variety of therapeutic approaches in order to promote healing, strengthen coping skills and enhance mental and emotional well-being.
