THERAPY & SUPPORT CENTRE
The Therapy & Support Centre (TSC) provides professional counselling and support services to clients and families of all backgrounds through two key services, the Become a Better you Program and Psychotherapy and Counselling Services.
Services are available for individuals, couples, and families who are struggling with various issues. These programs and services help families work through pre-existing and future issues. We also encourage individuals and families to attend our psychoeducational workshops and trainings that focus on parenting, healthy relationships, cultural sensitivity, stigma and mental health, stress management, and emotional regulation. We offer these services in many different languages with skilled and experienced psychologists and counsellors. TSC was previously a part of Immigrant Services Calgary and was moved to CFN on July 1, 2021. It has been a partner of Community Connections Calgary (CCYYC). CCYYC is a new collaborative initiative connecting Calgary's communities with affordable and barrier-free access to phone or video counselling sessions.
