Registered Programming

** Intake Appointment Required**

Individual Counselling

Monday-Friday by appointment. Participants will meet with the same clinician for 6 consecutive sessions that take place every 1 to 2 weeks. Sessions are 50 minutes long.

The short term individual counselling approach at Stella’s Place is integrative drawing primarily from Focused Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (FACT). FACT is a brief version of  Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and is an effective treatment for many mental health challenges. In a FACT approach, participants are viewed as “stuck, not broken”and treatment targets one primary issue, which is collaboratively selected by participant and clinician. Clinicians introduce experiential interventions during sessions to increase participant awareness, skillfulness, and encourage application beyond sessions. FACT supports individuals in taking values-based actions while coping flexibly and effectively with difficult challenges, thoughts, memories, and emotions.

One-to-One Peer Support

By appointment -Speak with a staff member to learn more

You can still connect with our Peer Supporters remotely!

In this program, Participants work collaboratively with Peer Supporters who intentionally draw from their lived experience to support participants’ mental health.
