Childrens and Youth Counsellors
The counsellors of VICCIR are trained in graduate schools as psychologists, counsellors, social workers, adult educators or child psychotherapists. Most have also trained in one or more models of therapy and/or therapeutic techniques, and all have been trained in trauma counselling.
Most of our counsellors are retired or employed elsewhere, either in their own practices or in hospitals, clinics, and other counselling centres. Each one is available to provide several hours of counselling weekly in our VICCIR offices, in Victoria or Duncan. Every counsellor has supervision, access to a consulting psychiatrist and trainings from time to time.
Their investment is purely voluntary. It is a heartfelt contribution to our community and its newest residents.
Please feel free to contact us, we are here to help. We maintain offices in Victoria and in Duncan.
