A recognized health care profession, counselling therapy is the art and science of helping clients grow toward a better sense of well being. Counselling therapists offer support for people working through mental health, emotional, and interpersonal issues.
We provide mental health services to adults, adolescents, children, couples, families and groups in mental health care clinics, healthcare facilities, community and government agencies, public and private school systems, community colleges, universities, correctional facilities, industrial sites, and private practice. We also work as managers, educators, program developers, and researchers.
We hold a counselling-related master’s degree as a minimum level of education. We complete 2,000 hours of supervised postgraduate clinical work which includes 800 direct therapist-client counselling hours. To maintain our license, we engage in at least 12 hours of professional development each year in the form of workshops, courses, online seminars, and externships.
