Our centre is working diligently to ensure that we remain available during this time of crisis. In response to the current pandemic, the CCC has shifted into providing intake and counselling services via telephone and video conferencing. We will also be reducing our hours as needed as we work to continue keeping our staff safe and services available. If you have any questions about these changes or the CCC please call us at the contact number below.

Group therapy provides a unique opportunity to examine personal issues and learn from others in a collaborative environment. Groups differ in terms of organization and subject matter, from interpersonal processing groups to structured psychoeducation groups on topics such as depression and anxiety.
As a part of our mission to support not only our clients but to provide supportive training for our students we look to extend the learning to our fellow community members. In order to provide the space and opportunity for continued development in a continuously change field of practice. We are opening up training opportunities for all those involved.
How to Connect
To access our counselling services please call our office and ask to book an intake appointment and identify if you are seeking individual, couples, and/or family counselling services. Our intake sessions at the CCC are a part of our training process. This means that at times students counselors will be accompanied by their supervisor in order to provide in the moment feedback and to ensure that you are receiving all the necessary information about our centre and our services. Our intake sessions are intended to gather information regarding your concerns to help guide the therapy process and to also determine if our services at the CCC fit your needs. In our dedication in supporting you, should our services not be a fit we will support you in connecting with other more suitable community resources.
