Counselling services for children and youth, ages 2-19, for a range of issues including anxiety, depression, sexual abuse, bullying, school stress, coming out, suicidal thoughts, self-injury, eating disorders, dating violence, self-esteem and others. The program also works with children and youth who are being impacted by their parent’s separation, divorce, relationship abuse or addictions.
Older children, aged 14-19, are generally in control of their own counselling process, determining what level of involvement their parents will have and what information will be shared between parent/counsellor. Length of service is based on the specific needs and issues presented. A sliding scale is offered to assist individuals who cannot pay for a full hour fee (scale of $20-$110). If a youth does not have money to pay for counselling and a parent is unwilling to help, a solution is worked out with the youth to get them the help they need, assisted by the generous support of donor funding. There is no cost for services for children and adolescents who have been sexually abused or sexually assaulted as those services are fully subsidized by the Ministry for Children and Family Development.
Counselling services are available in several languages.
