YOUR VOICE: COUNSELLING SERVICES


Breaking the Silence of Distress

Your Voice: Counselling Services aims to provide support to individuals living with mental health concerns, dis/ability related stigma, and racism. Through therapeutic intervention, Your Voice: Counselling Services can help individuals feel heard and validated.

It can be challenging for someone to cope with life's various issues without having a safe and comfortable space to discuss their feelings. Speaking to a counsellor can be key in terms of gaining better understanding of your emotions and seeking the clarity you need to address your personal issues.
