This website is specifically for individuals seeking information and support about the profession of counselling and psychotherapy. The website raises public awareness of the role of the profession in mental health and wellness and supports informed decision-making when choosing a mental health practitioner.

The public can find information on reasons for seeking counselling, types of therapies and even tips on finding the right therapist for them. This website demystifies therapy and clears many misconceptions that might be keeping some individuals who are considering counselling from going ahead with it. This is a safe and anonymous way for people to seek answers to their questions and gain access to the help they need.

If you wish to receive flyers and/ or business cards from this new website to post in your workplace, please email [email protected] or call 613-237-1099 x 102 with your request.
