Youth Counselling (Ages 16-24)

Research suggests that individuals (youth and adults) who partake in therapy can gain benefit from further support in navigating through difficult life stages.

Counselling Services for York Region offers evidence based youth-friendly therapeutic services in a confidential non-judgmental space. Early on, youth treatment and support was a rarity, but more so recently, the practice has increased greatly and has become a major component of care for young adults in York Region.  Our institution has contributed to this movement by offering a variety of programs and services specific for a youth demographic.

Therapists trained in youth counselling may draw from a variety of schools of therapy to better understand, interpret, and process presenting concerns/issues. Our therapists are recognized to be goal driven, supportive, and caring. It is within our interest to ensure that all of our youth clients receive efficient high quality care.

You may also request for your therapist to work collaboratively with your team of health care professionals (i.e. family physician, naturopath, physical therapist). After progress has been established, your therapist will send a report to your health care team.
