We believe that mental health and wellbeing is a journey….one that we are all on, at different stages in our lives. At the CCWR, our focus is to become a partner, with you on your journey of self-exploration and healing.
You are the expert on your own life and we commit to walking with you, offering our help and sharing our knowledge along the way. Together, we will work to create a safe space in which you are able to heal, energize, and become aware of your inner strengths.
We know that the cost of counselling can be a challenge. At the Counselling Collaborative, we believe this should never be a barrier to getting help.
While we do charge for many of our services, fees are calculated based on your income and ability to pay.
When setting your rate, we take your income into consideration and then apply any available funding sources. We are able to do this thanks to the generous support of our community and our funders.
You may be eligible for one of our fully funded services.
Counselling services may be reimbursed by your insurance provider or covered under workplace wellness services depending on your employer (employee assistance plan – EAP).
No one is turned away based on an inability to pay for service.
Call us! Together, we will make it work for you.
