We all need support from time to time, whether we’re a parent or child. YW works to create healthy family dynamics by supporting connections and helping clients develop strategies that promote mindfulness, emotion regulation, interpersonal effectiveness and resiliency. Family counselling provides a safe and supportive environment for women and their families to build stronger relationships and a healthy future.
YW works hand-in-hand with professionals including pediatricians, psychiatrists, physicians, schools and teachers, authorities and the court system to match our clients with the services that help them meet their needs and goals.
Parent + is a group for parents that provides tools to be used with your entire family. This group will help parents understand the meaning of mindfulness, as well as develop skills and effective strategies to create healthy family relationships.
Me, Myself & Mind
Me, Myself & Mind, is a group for children in grades four to six (8-12 years). It helps them understand the meaning, importance and application of mindfulness as a tool to control emotions. Children will practice skills and techniques to utilize in settings outside the group.
Women, children and men in family counselling can also access individual or group counselling sessions. We also refer women to our safe visitation program.
