The Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA) recognizes that the COVID-19 Pandemic has impacted the well-being of counsellors and psychotherapists. Our members, and the profession as a whole, have quickly adjusted their practice in unprecedented times.

Canadians are seeking mental health support in higher rates due to the pandemic. This places significant additional strain on a profession that is already at high risk for burnout and compassion fatigue. It’s a challenge to continue to support others, while also supporting yourself.

CCPA’s Thank a Therapist platform allows members and non-members alike to highlight the hard work, dedication and commitment of friends, family, colleagues, mentors and peers who are counsellors and psychotherapists. We hope this campaign helps bring together our professional community and boosts the morale of counsellors and psychotherapists across Canada.

Please consider thanking a therapist by sending a card using the form below. Let’s come together, while apart, and support the hard working counsellors and psychotherapists that support Canadians!
