Thrive Counselling Services Halton Inc. – $1,600 (Seed Grant)
Walk-In Counselling Program
Thrive Counselling has provided counselling to the Burlington community for over 50 years. With the ever-increasing demand for accessible counselling services, Thrive has committed to offering a free walk-in counselling clinic to the Burlington community. These services are available across the age spectrum and these clinics are being successfully offered in other areas of the province and have strong research evidence of their helpfulness.
As the provision of single session counselling differs from more traditional counselling approaches, staff require training to have these sessions be as effective as possible. Thrive has provided a full day of training for their staff and this grant will support an additional day of training for staff.
