Welcome to the Citizens’ Counselling Centre website.

The Greater Victoria Citizens’ Counselling Centre offers affordable, accessible counselling to adult residents of Greater Victoria. All counselling is offered by volunteer counsellors trained and supervised by the Centre. We have a sliding fee scale based on family income.

We offer individual counselling, couples counselling, and group counselling. Our groups run three times each year (Fall, Winter and Spring) and include self esteem groups, anger management groups, and groups with a focus on stress, anxiety and depression.

The Centre began in 1969 and since then we have worked with over 22,000 people.

If you are struggling with life issues and hope that seeing a counsellor might make life easier, please call us. We are here for you.

What will happen
when I call?

Well to start, most people tell us that things began to feel a little better as soon as they made the call.

1. You'll be offered some information about our services

2. We will get your contact info and ask you a few questions, including your annual income (our fees are on a sliding scale) and what you hope to gain as a result of counselling.

3. A time will be set for your face-to-face Intake Interview. Please think about your schedule so you will be prepared to provide us with your availability.

4. You will be placed on our wait list and will be carefully matched with one of our volunteer counsellors as soon as we can do this.

You may also be offered information about other support services that will help you on your journey.
