Counselling & Support Groups
At times, your personal life may feel like it is spinning out of control. We provide short term counselling to individuals, couples, families and children and occasionally are able to provide group counselling on a variety of topics. We offer a supportive, comfortable, confidential and safe place at our resource centre. Arrangements can be made for childcare during appointments. All counselling is free.
Covid-19 Counselling Precautions
Our Kids Count and Catholic Family Development Centre Thunder Bay continue to work together to ensure those who need counselling can receive it. Counselling is available via telephone or virtually. Please note, due to covid measures, walk-in and in-person counselling are post-poned until further notice.
