Counselling

Clients who come to our Centre are experts in their own lives. By expressing their experiences in a safe, compassionate, accepting and accountable environment, our clients have shared that they have managed and overcome symptoms of trauma, including:

  • Working through intense emotions such as anger, betrayal or shame;
  • Enhancing well-being, self-care and self-compassion;
  • Exploring and coping better with challenges in relationships.

Individual trauma-informed counselling is free and confidential to survivors* of sexual violence. Counselling is available for individuals of both recent and historical sexual assault, as well as other forms of sexual violence.  If you are looking for counselling or consultation as a parent, caregiver, or partner of a survivor, call us and we can provide support and information.  If you are under the age of 16, you can call us and we will provide information on services and help link you to community supports.  Peer support may also be offered on an individual basis.

Contact the Centre for counselling accommodations if you will experience barriers to traveling to Peterborough.

* Please note the Centre offers counselling services to survivors of all gender expressions and identities through a feminist, anti-oppressive/anti-racist philosophy.
