UPDATE: With some of the restrictions lifting, we are starting to offer face-to-face sessions for some specific situations and will be continuing to offer a limited number of phone sessions for certain client circumstances. Please note that WE ARE NOT AT FULL CAPACITY and are instead gradually opening our schedules. This will mean there will be wait times that we cannot define and possibly other limitations until we are able to fully assess the situation. With the restrictions, we have had to adjust our screening process and we ask for patience as we start to organize the scheduling for sessions. If you would like to discuss having a session with us, please CALL OUR OFFICE at 455-4976 and one of us will be in contact with you to talk about the options. Again, please note that there will likely be a wait time of a couple of days for calls to be returned.

Our commitment to following the guidelines includes:

1) having only one counsellor scheduled per day to limit the number of people

2) We will be doing our best to leave 30 minutes between appointment times to avoid overlap of people. We ask that you do not arrive early for your appointments and to respect having only two clients in the waiting room at any time.

3) Using our largest office with the most physical distance

4) Counsellors and staff wearing masks and having plexiglass separating the front desk from the waiting area

5) Wipe-down of surfaces after each client leaves

Please confirm that you are not ill with flu-like symptoms or in quarantine from possible exposure to COVID-19. If you need to cancel on the day of your appointment due to these reasons, you will not be penalized

How Counselling Can Help You

You don’t need to have a mental health problem to benefit from counselling. Many people seek help for everyday concerns such as job stress, relationship problems, anxiety, anger, or grief. Some turn to therapy during difficult times, such as in the case of a divorce. No matter what your struggle may be, Northside Counselling Services can provide a comforting and inviting environment where we can work together towards a resolution.

We’re Here to Support You

Talking about your thoughts and feelings with a supportive person can make you feel better, more productive, and happier. With over 40 years of combined experience, our counsellors provide support, strategies, and techniques to help people manage and overcome a variety of issues. Whether you’re dealing with problems in your marriage, parenting challenges, the impact of trauma, or difficulty coping with everyday life, we will customize our approach to serve your specific needs.

Completely Confidential

Confidentiality is one of the most important parts of the counselling process. We aim to provide counselling services in a safe and supportive environment where confidentiality is protected. We consider it a privilege to be invited into the stories of our clients, and we seek to honour those stories in the work that we do. Any limits to confidentiality are clearly identified and discussed during the first session.
