A Relational Approach

More and more today we hear about the increasing problem of mental health challenges faced by too many children, youth, and families.  It’s an extremely troubling picture affecting people in all walks of life.

But there is good news. Today we understand much more about the most effective ways to help children, youth and families experiencing challenges, and we know much more about the skills and knowledge that can help them avoid such problems in the future.  Every day, countless individuals take deliberate, positive steps forward in their own recovery toward a more fulfilling life.

The key is something called a Relational approach, and it is the basis of all Ripple Effect programs and services. Through the power of human relationships, children and youth are helped to recognize and apply strengths and positive attributes in themselves, develop adaptive, self-empowering beliefs, master coping techniques to deal with stressful situations, and begin to formulate practical strategies to achieve their future goals.

If you are seeking help for yourself or someone in your family, the Ripple Effect approach can make a real difference.  We offer a range of counselling and psychoeducational services, including individual and group options for children, youth, adults, and families. We hope you’ll contact us to discuss your particular needs.
