Provide affordable counselling services to people who need it in the City of London and beyond.
Provide quality training and clinical placement hours under direct supervision to therapist interns.
All people have worth and value.
All people deserve to be treated with dignity and respect.
All people deserve access to affordable counselling services.
Established in 2019, the Community Counselling Centre of London was created to fill an apparent and escalating need in our mental health care resources. Many people are unable to access affordable, timely and consistent mental health care. In order for solid change to occur, for both individuals and the communities we live in, this is a resource that must be
available to everyone no matter their socioeconomic status.
We are part of this solution by providing subsidized psychospiritual therapy sessions to clients through a unique
model that also provides quality training and clinical placement hours to graduate level therapist interns under direct supervision. We are an accredited teaching centre with the Canadian Association for Spiritual Care/Association canadienne de soins spirituels (CASC/ACSS) and our Supervisor-Educators are certified.
While each client at our Centre is assessed individually based on household income and number of dependents to determine the session fee, many clients, especially those who are unhoused or on ODSP and OW, receive fully subsidized counselling sessions.
According to the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association, "One in five Canadians experience a mental health issue or illness. 4,000 Canadians die every year as a result of suicide. In Canada, counselling is the most prevalent, but least likely fulfilled mental health care need."
It is our hope to continue to provide affordable counselling to vulnerable citizens of London.
We can do this with your donations and sponsorship.
