Collaboration to reach your goal is an essential element of our work together.  The client brings open communication and a desire for change.  Counselling is a short-term process.  It will help you to identify problems and resolve crises, and encourage you to take positive steps to resolve these issues.   Psychotherapy is a longer-term process of treatment that identifies emotional issues and the background to problems and difficulties. It will help you understand your feelings, thoughts and actions more clearly.   


Counselling for Change is located in Stoney Creek, Ontario. It is easily accessible by car or Hamilton Street Railway (HSR) bus with Stoney Creek Trans-Cab.
