Our counsellors work from a feminist-based counselling model. Our non-judgmental approach recognizes that women’s feelings and problems are not signs of weakness or sickness, but understandable coping responses for dealing with complicated lives.
You and your counsellor will work together to help you develop a sense of your own power and ability to manage your life in healthy ways by becoming aware of your emotions, strengths, needs, and supports.
You will be seeing a qualified, experienced counsellor who will help you identify and understand your problems and help you find new ways of dealing with your concerns.
Some issues you may want to talk about include:
You do not need a referral from a doctor to use our counselling services. For more information about our general counselling services, please call our Counselling and Information Intake line: 204.947.2422 ext. 204.
Please note: There may be a waiting list for some WHC counselling services.
There are other counselling services in Winnipeg that are free or have a sliding fee scale (based on your income). Some workplaces have free Employee Assistance Programs (EAP). Students, please check with Student Services at your University or College to find out more about the supports they offer.
