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.
My name is Jaleesa Bygrave and I have a Master's degree in Social Work and have worked in the field of social work since 2011. I have a wealth of experience providing social work services to clients affected by anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, racism, dis/ability stigma, criminal justice system issues, HIV and AIDS stigma, grief/bereavement and relationship concerns.
I am a registered social worker in good standing with the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers (OCSWSSW). I have experience working with clients of diverse backgrounds and experiences and incorporate this into my social work practice.
I have made public appearances on podcasts, at conferences and community presentations where I discussed subject matters such as dis/ability, racism and mental health.
