Jewish Family and Child Service can help. We offer affordable, professional counselling to individuals, couples and families to help manage the stresses of modern life. Our counselling services are confidential and convenient. We welcome people of all cultural, religious or racial backgrounds. Fees for Jewish Family and Child Service counselling are competitive with those offered by the private community. Subsidies are available to those who qualify.
Many of our counselling clients benefit from attending one of the Groups and Workshops offered by JF&CS. These programs can assist you in preparing for short-term counselling or with integrating the new information and insights counselling has provided. Group programs are offered addressing many areas, ranging from divorce and separation to effective parenting, bereavement to anger management, communication for couples to adolescent social skills development.
"We are living in a time of unprecedented growth and rapid-fire change. Nothing seems to stay the same for very long, not even our basic understanding of the world around us. Is it any wonder then that more and more people are suffering from anxiety and depression or are struggling with the complexities of life?" Ron Cohen, JF&CS Social Worker
Jewish Family and Child Service also offers Cognitive Behaviour Therapy - an evidence-based type of counselling which has been proven to be effective for depression, anxiety, panic disorder and self-esteem issues.Our counsellors have had extensive training by a psychologist certified by the Academy of Cognitive Therapy. Initially, an assessment will be done in order to determine if you will benefit from this approach. Then with your agreement, a treatment plan with goals will be created.
