Goal-Oriented Counselling

Are you facing a problem that you don’t know how to solve? Help is here. Our mental health therapists can help you understand your situation better and figure out ways to move successfully through it.

Often, just one session may be enough to help you think more clearly and work through your own solution when you are feeling stuck.

Going to counselling may feel like a big step, but we’ve made accessing counselling easier. You can just drop in for a session during our hours of service – no appointment is needed. And your first appointment is free!
