YOUR VOICE: COUNSELLING SERVICES


Breaking the Silence of Distress

Your Voice: Counselling Services aims to provide support to individuals experiencing difficulties with maintaining optimal mental wellness due to discrimination, relationship issues, traumatic events or emotional dysregulation. 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, racial trauma, ableism, criminal justice system involvement, chronic health issues, homophobia/transphobia, 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.
