Our free, bilingual, telephone-based programs are designed to support clients manage and overcome anxiety and depression. Clients can choose their delivery method (group-based or one-one coaching) and how you would like your materials (handbook, online or app).
Our Coaches are competency trained to understand personal and cultural sensitivities such as Military, LGBTQ2S+, Indigenous, and people living with physical impairments or neurodevelopmental issues as well as the many life stressors related to Covid-19 impacts. Children and adults alike are facing extreme periods of worry, anxiety and behaviour issues as a result. Our programs are designed to help you at the level of care you need. Our highly trained Coaches are here to support you during the pandemic and beyond.

How it works:
You will complete questionnaires that provide us with more detail about your current situation to better match you to the best program options.
• weekly telephone support with a coach (one on one or group)
• self-guided with open drop-in group coaching support when needed.
Our groups are safe, judgment-free spaces where you can connect with others who are dealing with similar issues, reassuring each other that you are not alone while learning and practicing your skills. As a participant in a group, you can feel free to share as much or as little as you like. Your Coach will leave silence so you and other group members can chat amongst yourselves, answer each other’s questions, and provide peer support
