Providing Counselling for Women 19 & Up
We provide individual and/or group counselling for women who have experienced childhood sexual abuse, sexual assault, and/or violence/abuse in relationships. These services are offered from a client centered perspective. We offer a group for female survivors of childhood sexual abuse – called Women's Therapy Group.
Groups: Women's Therapy Group is offered each September and runs for 15 weeks. The Non-Offending Parent Group is offered each January and runs for 8 weeks. These groups are closed and structured to offer a positive environment for growth, healing and mutual support.
Referrals: Come from a variety of community, and professional sources. Self-referral is also accepted.
Funding: These services are provided free of charge in order to free women, children and families up to pursue healing for themselves. The STV program exists primarily due to the funding provided by the Ministry of Public Safety and Solicitor General.
Other sources of funding are provided by the Abbotsford Lions Club, The Crime Victims Assistance Program, Community Members and other Service Clubs. We would like to thank all of our donors whose generous donations make it possible to provide these critical services to our community.
