Services for the whole family.

Family counselling and programs for families are a large part of what we do at Family Services. We have programs for helping parents with challenges such as parenting teenage children, dealing with violence within the home, and raising children in a LGBTTQ household.

If you are experiencing difficulties with your family relationships, look through our programs to find the one that suits you or feel free to call us.

Our caring team of counsellors is available for telephone or video counselling. Please contact the intake worker to learn more about how we can help support you 613 725-3601.
