Family Counselling is intended to help caregivers explore their concerns about their child with a trained therapist. The goals of counselling services are to help your family get an understanding of your concerns and to enhance problem solving skills; as well, to give your family an opportunity to learn effective ways to cope with any different challenges.

Benefits of Family Counselling may include:

  • Receiving help to define family goals
  • Finding ways of achieving the goals and improving communication in your relationships
  • Learning new information about your child’s personality or development
  • Connecting or coordinating services with other community groups and activities
  • Communicating with your child’s school or day care
  • Learning more effective or useful parenting strategies
  • Receiving an assessment to help with treatment planning (e.g., psychological assessment)
  • Experiencing a safe place to talk about painful events that have affected your child

Access to this group is through Intake.
