We have Counsellors who are specially trained to work with children.

In addition to traditional therapy, many of our Counsellors also offer art, sand and play therapy which are extremely helpful for kids when they may not have the words to describe their feelings.

Please Note:
When booking an appointment for a child 12 years old or younger, the first session will be a Parent(s) or Caregiver Only session to allow our Counsellors to gain insight and fully understand the situation your child is experiencing.  This helps to guide our work to ensure the most positive outcome for your child.

Children and youth under the age of 16 must have legal guardian consent for services.
Youth aged 16 and over are able to book counselling sessions on their own if so desired, and are entitled to total confidentiality.

If parents of the child/children are separated/divorcedboth parents must sign a consent form for counselling services prior to the first session with the child.  Parental consent forms can be sent by email for signatures prior to your first visit and our office will help you with this.
