Counselling

Counselling offers specialized result oriented treatment for individuals who request assistance with a broad range of personal, relationship, social and emotional problems. Counsellors provide the support to assist clients in realizing their maximum potential. Confidentiality is always respected. Clients may seek assistance for a wide range of issues such as handling difficult situations, pain management, lifestyle adaptations, women's issues, depression, anxiety, stress management, grieving and bereavement. Assistance in dealing with the impact of illness or injury on the individual and family, such as, after an acquired brain injury or trauma is available.

Just as injuries require physiotherapy, injuries may also benefit from counseling. Through counselling the stress of pain and frustration may be lessened and may speed up recovery.
