Access up to 10 counseling sessions when enrolled in the Bridges Employment Program, and 20 sessions when enrolled in the Indigenous Bridging Program.

  • Bridges houses highly-trained and certified counselors offering trauma-informed, somatic experiencing, and woman-centered approaches to counseling. One-to-one counseling works to address and work through the impacts of trauma that create barriers to our freedom, confidence and life goals.
  • Counselling will help increase your safety and connection to community resources, increase skills on how to break out of the cycle of trauma and addictions, honour old ways of coping and learn how to reframe the effects of trauma in order to reconstruct a long standing identity of courage and intelligence.
  • Sliding scale trauma counseling sessions are available. The rate scale is between 60$ and 110$, or 150$ with a $30 tax receipt for a donation that gives directly to Bridges programs. Sliding scale counselling only offered at the downtown Victoria location.

Trauma, often known as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, is a common response or a result of experiences of violence, abuse, neglect or intergenerational trauma.
