Q: What is counselling and how can it help?
A: Counselling offers a safe place to talk about things that may be difficult to share with others. You can say as much or as little as you wish. Our counsellors will listen to you without judgement and help you find healthy ways to cope with and/or resolve these issues.
Q: What can I talk about?
A: Any issue can be discussed in confidence with our counsellors. Typical issues include but are not limited to: information on community resources, financial stress, relationship difficulties, anger, addictions, domestic abuse, sexual assault, anxiety, depression, other mental/physical health concerns, suicide, and more. You can talk about yourself or someone else you are concerned about.
