Couples Counselling is for those looking to improve intimacy, overcome trust and communication issues.

Sometimes, couples seek therapy because they are considering separation; counseling provides a safe space to explore these issues and to gain insights and tools to inform their decision-making better.
Family Counselling provides a safe and therapeutic space for the entire family unit.

It helps to identify each family member’s unique needs and strengths to support one another. Family counseling can decrease stress and build more effective, meaningful, long-lasting relationships.
Child and youth counselling
Child and Youth Counselling starts with an initial appointment with the parents or legal guardians. Once the counselor meets with parents to obtain information and parental consent, the counselor and child/teen meet to work on a wide range of issues which may include loneliness, peer rejection, bullying at school, anxiety, depression, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), substance use, gender/ identity questioning, and gaming addiction. The work between the child/teen and the counselor is confidential. However, counselors provide parents with tools and recommendations to address the unique needs of their child/teen.
