Parent Training and Support Services

Hollyburn’s family programs offer a broad spectrum of publicly-funded and fee-for-service family counselling options to address the many challenges that people face at all different stages of life.

People who access our programs benefit from the integrated approach of experienced counsellors who have access to a myriad number of professionals working across other areas of the agency. Clients in our private counselling and family support programs benefit from a virtual brain trust of expertise, as they have access to those professionals who also specialize in working with youth, special needs, senior’s wellness, and victim services programs.

Our ability to integrate these services for counselling clients on the North Shore is unrivalled in the North Shore community. Both short-term publicly funded options (for families with children under the age of 19) and longer-term affordable options are provided for all families who live on the North Shore.

For publicly-funded family support options (including group and individual services as well as specialized parent-teen mediation) call the central intake line at 604-987-1411.

For private, longer-term effective individual, couples, and family counselling call 604-987-8211 or email email hidden; JavaScript is required
