Our children’s counselling program is based on the play therapy model where children express themselves and their feelings through play. This is short term counselling, provided FREE of CHARGE, to support and provide play based interventions for children who have been impacted by family violence, abuse, or bullying. We offer this program to children (ages 5-11) of all genders.
In order to receive this service for your child, we do require that at least 1 parent or guardian participate in the program to work toward counselling goals together.
Please note: Not everyone may be ready for our counselling programs. If your child is in crisis or needs emergency mental health support, please call 911 or a 24/7 mental health service. Our intakes are not conducted everyday. When you call or email us, we will schedule a 15 minute pre-screen over the phone. If counselling services are requested and deemed appropriate for your situation, we’ll schedule an in-person 1 hour intake with our child play therapist. Because of the nature of play based therapy, sessions need to be done in person. Unfortunately, we cannot offer this service via video or over the phone.
We gladly accept referrals from other organizations and medical professionals as well as individuals calling about services for their own children. If you are looking for immediate resources, please view our resources page.
