Summary

We believe the anchor symbolizes support and strength to get you through the difficult times in your life - we will be your anchor. Our goal is to connect you with the right clinician who will strive to empower you to reach a breakthrough within six to eight sessions. We know the value of giving compassionate, qualified counsellors the chance to work with the population they know best. That is why if you have the courage to share your story and the willingness to work, your counsellor will develop an individualized treatment plan.
