COUNSELLING

Supportive Counselling for Adults

Since 1994, Esquimalt Neighbourhood House Society has offered barrier free and most importantly free of charge, supportive counselling for adults living in the Greater Victoria Area.  Our community-based mental health and addictions counselling is tailored to individual needs and includes talking, relationship building, crisis intervention, accompaniment and advocacy.  This free service is offered to adults seeking help coping with anxiety, depression, trauma, safety, abuse, stress, hopelessness, grief/loss and isolation.  This much needed and vital service is primarily offered by a diverse group of volunteer counsellors who have been trained through our annual 10 month intensive training program.

Youth and Family Support

We promote family and community capacity to protect and support youth and their families through access to supportive counselling, crisis intervention, mediation, parent education, system navigation, outreach and referral.  Our aim is to build upon youth and family strengths, improve family relationships and the understanding of teen development.  This service is free of charge for youth (13 to 18 years) and their families.
