Counselling

In today’s fast-paced and stressful world, it’s easy to become overwhelmed by the challenges of everyday life. When we are having trouble coping, our family, friendships and work are all affected.

Counselling is an effective way to work through these challenges and develop strategies to help you cope, and create greater happiness in your life.

SOS assists in providing referrals for counselling to low income individuals, couples and families. These are short-term, solution-focused sessions led by local, contracted, professional counsellors. 

Challenges may include:
• Situational anxiety, depression or stress
• Marital or parenting difficulties
• Issues where 1 - 5 solution-focused sessions may be appropriate

Fee is determined on an individual basis.

This program is partially funded by the Ministry of Children and Family Development.

SOS also offers Personal Growth Groups. Enhance your quality of life and develop trust, support and confidence.
