Group Counselling

Please note: All groups are currently being offered via Zoom until further notice.

What is Group Counselling?

Engaging in group counselling takes a lot of courage and provides you with the opportunity to discover much about yourself. Group counselling can be a powerful and valuable venue for change and growth. Before joining a group, you will meet a group facilitator one-on-one to discuss what to expect, group content, and whether or not the group is a right fit for you at this time.
