WHAT WE PROVIDE
We are committed to professional standards and a caring non-judgmental approach to people in need. All of our services are confidential.
Niagara Life Centre has implemented partial contribution payment by clients towards their counselling costs. The cost to the client will be kept at an affordable level with the greatest percentage continuing to be subsidized by Niagara Life Centre’s many faithful supporters. NLC will continue its commitment to serve ALL clients. If needed, arrangements for further subsidy will be made. Click here for more info about fees.
Individual counselling is for anyone, regardless of age, who may be hurting, confused, frustrated, or feeling overwhelmed by personal problems. At Niagara Life Centre, counsellors can help with a variety of issues including anxiety, depression, grief, loss, addictions, trauma, stress, eating disorders, and relational issues.
Through counselling, we explore areas of conflict within marriage relationships. Our counsellors help couples to identify problem areas and help individuals take responsibility for his or her personal contribution to the presenting issue. We also educate couples on communication styles and healthy conflict resolution.
Family counselling brings various members of the family together with a counsellor in a confidential session, helping each member understand the problem and how he or she can best contribute to the solution. Counselling the whole family or smaller units within the family can help bring healing in difficult family situations.
Niagara Life Centre continues to develop and add vital programs that help clients in a group setting. Check periodically on our website and Facebook page for new group programs. Past and current group programs have included classes addressing anxiety and depression, grief, addiction, parenting and pregnancy support, teen support, and healthy relationships.
We seek to educate the client on the consequences of the three options: abortion, adoption and parenting. We provide a non-judgmental environment and ongoing support no matter what decision the client chooses to make. For moms-to-be we offer individual and group programs.
After Suicide: Postvention Support
A postvention is an intervention conducted after a suicide, largely taking the form of support for the bereaved family and friends of the suicide victim.
Anger management teaches individuals how to identify the root causes of their anger and provides strategies that work toward resolving these issues. Techniques to control and cope with anger are taught so that individuals might be freed from the control that anger holds over their lives.
We offer individual and group counselling which addresses the challenges parents face while raising children of all ages. For mothers with babies and toddlers, and if there is enough interest, a Mom’s and Tot’s program is offered.
Child and Youth
Child and Youth Counsellors work with children, teenagers and possibly the entire family who are experiencing social, emotional or behavioural stress in an individual or group setting. Many children benefit from the techniques of play therapy.
Worthy Reboot: Overcoming Pornography
Niagara Life Centre offers support for those struggling with sexually compulsive behaviours, specifically pornography. Counsellors walk along side clients to see the impact on their relationships, identify triggers, and heal and maintain recovery through support.
