Counselling offers a way to gather information, support and build the tools and strength you need on your journey to recover. We recognize that each person is unique, and so is their path to healing. Counselling services at Amelia Rising are always free and confidential. Services are offered in both French and English.
Due to COVID-19, we are offering counselling and support services virtually via Zoom, or by phone. Contact our Office Administrator with questions or to begin services:
Individual Counselling for Survivors
Trauma-informed individual counselling sessions are available in a non-judgmental, supportive environment for people 12 years of age and older who have experienced recent sexual violence or assault in the past. It is based on a holistic approach that considers individual needs with a goal of empowerment, healing and providing tools to allow you to make informed choices and direct the process in a way that is right for you.
Support Sessions for Supporters
Amelia Rising provides support sessions for those who are currently supporting a survivor of sexual and/or gender-based violence. During support sessions we can provide information and support for partners, families and friends of survivors.
