We offer confidential counselling for individuals who have experienced domestic violence and/or sexual assault. Our counselling service includes professional support for those who have experienced domestic violence, and for those questioning whether or not a current relationship is healthy. We also provide consultations for professionals, family members and friends who are seeking tools to help support a peer who may be in an abusive or unsafe relationship. Supportive counselling is available in Banff, Lake Louise, and Canmore.
This Program is for:
- Individuals who have experienced emotional, physical or sexual abuse from an intimate partner.
- Individuals questioning whether a current relationship is healthy.
- Individuals who have experienced sexual assault by someone other than an intimate partner.
- Individuals who are supporting a friend or family member who is experiencing violence.
