Stopping the Violence Counselling (S.T.V)
The goal of the Stopping the Violence Program is to empower women to evolve from victim to victor and thus enable them to develop to their fullest potential.
The program offers free, confidential individual and/or group counselling and support to women who are currently experiencing or have experienced any type of abuse (emotional, physical and/or sexual) across their lifespan.
The service is feminist-based counselling, with priority given to safety and support. The program provides non-judgmental, empathic counselling to women 19 years old and over, and to teenage girls living an adult lifestyle where no other suitable services are available. Clients may access one hour individual sessions and /or group counselling.
The “I Can” empowerment group is a weekly ongoing, facilitated support group providing professional counselling, peer support, educational opportunities and access to a variety of resources.
The “I Can” group is held every Thursday from 10am to 12 noon.
