A safe therapeutic relationship is the foundation of therapy at the CCC as this can open the opportunity for personal growth that in many ways can bring you a deeper understanding of yourself or others, improve relationships, and lead to better ways of understanding problems and challenges in your life. Counselling as a model of help has been proven to be a legitimate source of support through challenges of life for many people. In many cases, counselling will move you through challenging topics or times in your life that may result in difficult feelings. As you agree to counselling it is important that you are aware that as deeper exploration occurs that things may feel worse before relief is uncovered. The CCC uses many different modalities of therapy as our counsellors work toward discovering who they are and will be as counsellors.
Our Centre is unique because of the training nature of the therapeutic relationship therefore as you and your counsellor develop this relationship you will both be learning from one another as therapy progresses. Our student counellors will be learning through in the moment experiences with you alongside continuous feedback from their supervisors. This is done with the intention of providing continuous opportunities for counsellor development as their work towards the completion of their specialization.
It is important to remember that all of our counselling services at the CCC are voluntary and you are welcome to withdraw at any time.
Our services are structured around the practicum hours and availability of current Masters students and as a result there may be times in which a transition from the waitlist to active counselling services may slow down. For this reason, our centre offers waitlist check in sessions should a concern arise or intensify while you are waiting. Please do not hesitate to contact us using the phone number above and ask to book a check-in session. Additionally, on the back of this info sheet we have also compiled a series of online and community resources that may be helpful.
