Counselling Services

Fostering resiliency and balance in individuals and families

Your well being is of utmost importance. There may be times when you or your loved one would benefit from counselling services to work through an area of concern or process changes. Counselling is often the ideal space to do some of these processes. By setting aside some time to focus on mental mealth and well being, you are creating an opportunity to bring your best self to your family and other areas of your life.

Extended medical can often be used for Registered Clinical Counselling services, your AFB funds may also be used. If you have any questions regarding funding and payment, we are happy to answer questions. FIVE is also committed to giving back to our community through the provision of pro bono services for families that cannot afford to pay for this service. We will begin with offering 10% of our counsellor’s hours free and work up to 20% or 6 of 30 hours/week free of charge. You can speak to someone on your FIVE team, or our counsellor, if you sense that you would qualify for this program. 

My name is Erin Farley, and I am thrilled to provide mental health support with the FIVE team.  I am a Master’s level Clinical Counsellor, as well as Family Services Manager. I began connecting with families as a Behaviour Interventionist seven years ago, and am excited to be bringing all that I learned from those individuals into my clinical role.  I offer an integrative theoretical approach that incorporates Person-centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy. In counselling session, I provide a comfortable, non-judgemental environment to explore areas of your choosing, at your own pace. My passion is supporting people and seeing them thrive!

We provide support to people experiencing: 

– depression,

– anxiety and stress,

– grief and loss, and

– major life transitions.
