Welcome to Cambrian Counselling and Wellness (CCW), where we embrace the spirit of the Canadian Shield, also known as the Precambrian Shield, an expansive geological wonder spanning across Ontario, Canada—right where our clinic thrives and serves.

Much like this enduring geological formation, at CCW, we hold firm the belief that relationships form the bedrock and essence of a fulfilling life. We recognize the intrinsic need for human connections, understanding that both giving and receiving support are fundamental to our well-being. You're not meant to navigate life's challenges in isolation.

Therapy is a transformative journey accessible to everyone, irrespective of whether you're experiencing acute crises or seeking guidance through life's transitions. Many of our clients engage in therapy for various reasons, such as pre-marital counselling or creating a safe space for unbiased reflection and processing.

Here at CCW, we don't just focus on a singular aspect; we embrace your entire world—the relationship with yourself, family, friends, work, and the broader context of society shaping your experiences. Our approach involves immersing ourselves in your reality, understanding, and supporting you every step of the way. You're never alone in this journey.

We understand that the cornerstone of successful therapy is the connection between the client and therapist. At CCW, nurturing this bond is paramount; we deeply value and honor the relationship we build with you, ensuring it's founded on respect and compassion.

Allow us the privilege of joining you on your journey. If we're not the perfect fit, we're committed to assisting you in finding a clinician who resonates with you—making the search for mental health support feel like finding your way home. Your well-being matters to us, and we're here to support you every step of the way.

Diversity, Inclusion and Equity

our commitment

At Cambrian Counselling & Wellness (CCW), our therapists are dedicated to making everyone feel welcome and respected. We believe in embracing differences and making sure that everyone, no matter their age, background, abilities, where they're from, who they love, or what they believe, feels supported. We deeply honor and prioritize diversity, continually striving to expand our knowledge and employ evidence-based practices that support individuals facing diverse challenges.

CCW acknowledges that our work, alongside our community partners, occurs on the traditional territories of Indigenous peoples throughout the province. We hold deep respect for the history, spirituality, and culture of the 46 treaties and other agreements that encompass the land now known as Ontario. We express gratitude for the opportunity to live and work in these territories, recognizing the stewardship of the First Nations, Métis, and Inuit peoples who have cared for this land and its waters for generations. As Treaty People, may we all honour this land with respect and foster peaceful, harmonious relationships among its diverse communities

Through ongoing education, social advocacy, and raising awareness, we actively confront and address the challenges of equity, diversity, and inclusion in our communities. We care about fairness and making sure everyone gets the help they need, no matter who they are. We're always trying to improve by learning more and speaking up about what's right.

As Social Workers, Social Service Workers, Psychotherapists, and Occupational Therapists, we see the chance to make a real difference in people's lives. We have a unique opportunity to impact our clients and communities through acknowledgment and actively addressing systemic racism and dismantling oppressive practices experienced by our marginalized clients.

In our therapy rooms, our therapists bring their complete humanity, fostering an atmosphere where clients are encouraged to authentically show up as their true selves. We are dedicated to nurturing a space where individuals feel safe and empowered to express their genuine identities during our therapy sessions. At CCW, we stand by our commitment to creating an inclusive, supportive, and affirming environment for all.
