YOU’RE NOT ALONE

Find comfort and support through all the ups and downs

Having a baby is full of challenges, no matter how prepared you might feel. It’s easy to become overwhelmed, anxious, or disconnected. You might feel bad for even having these emotions, convinced that you should be happy and pretending everything’s fine, even though you’re struggling inside.

If your journey to parenthood is harder than you expected, it’s important to remember that you don’t have to struggle alone.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What's on your mind?

No, you do not need a referral from your doctor or anyone else to see a counsellor.

Absolutely! We recognize how challenging it can be to find time during the postpartum period to attend appointments for yourself. Our counsellors are very comfortable with having babies in sessions!

The first appointment is called an “intake session,” and is often an information gathering session. There will be some paperwork to go over, a discussion about the counselling process, and an opportunity for you to ask questions. The first session often has a different “feel” compared to other counselling sessions. Since everyone is different, the first session helps your counsellor get to know you and find out in more detail about how they can help.

Cancellations made between the period of one month to two weeks prior to the first group session date will incur a 50% cancellation fee. No refunds will be given for cancellation requests within two weeks of the first group session date. Registration is non-transferable and not available for resale. Receipts will be provided for insurance and/or income tax purposes if applicable.
