Calgary Counselling Centre offers support to children and youth through individual, family and group counselling. The Centre offers two children's groups - Responsible Choices for Children and Children of Divorce. Our group counselling programs are unique as they include the children as well as their parents or guardians. Working with both the children and parents results in a better assessment of the cause and in more significant positive client results.
In 2013, we saw great success in both our children's programs with over 140 children and parents participating in either our Children of Divorce or Responsible Choices for Children programs.
We continue to be one of leading organizations in Calgary to incorporate play therapy, a specialty in the psychology industry, into our counselling techniques and will continue to use this effective method for years to come.
In 2013, the Centre was part of an exciting fundraising initiative to raise awareness for adolescent mental health. This garden party event was held by one of our dedicated supporters, W. Brett Wilson and was an outstanding opportunity to connect with individuals in the community who are in need. Thanks to W. Brett Wilson for bring attention to this crucial area in mental health.
For 2014, we plan to grow our wealth of expertise in the area of child and youth by encouraging close collaboration between staff leaders and students to polish skills and spark innovation. This area continues to produce impressive results and we believe the change we see now will only flourish in the future.
I really liked the environment at Calgary Counselling Centre. I knew everything was confidential and I felt extremely valued."– Matthew, Client
