Regular Stream Counselling

Sometimes the preparation required to initiate and manage change takes more than a new idea or fresh way of seeing things. It can require time and energy to develop the understanding, ability and skills to take the steps towards change that we desire in our lives.

In order to respond to the variety of issues that clients bring to counselling, as well as promote the kind of change clients wish to achieve, Catholic Family Services of Peel-Dufferin offers a longer-term counselling option. This way of working can allow greater time and energy to be spent in the therapeutic partnership.

Circle of Healing

Circle of Healing is a mindfulness based trauma counselling group for women who have experienced trauma and abuse in childhood. This group program provides women who have already been involved in a healing process an opportunity to:

  • Deepen connection to self and others
  • Be supported in developing greater experience, compassion and non-judgement
  • Learn the skills of moment-to-moment awareness
  • Experience enhanced 'presence' in all aspects of living
