The intake will consist of gathering basic information and providing client with information on the therapeutic groups, individual counselling, or women's support groups. At that time, individuals will be registered to attend six bi-weekly educational workshops. If an individual does not feel comfortable in participating in a group, they will then meet individually with our therapist who will go through the information with them. Individuals who attend the educational workshops are not expected to share their stories at any given time. Once the educational groups are completed, individuals will be offered therapeutic groups to participate in, followed by individual counselling. Individuals who feel satisfied with the information given during the workshops can choose to not engage in individual counselling. We understand that every individual has different needs and will accommodate individuals the best we can. For example, an individual may access court support services during the course of the workshops.
Individuals can present at our office or contact us via telephone to schedule an appointment for intake. The intake will take place between two to three weeks from the time of the initial contact. Individuals looking for services in French will be referred to another organization. Transition services may also be provided for potential clients who are seeking services for sexual assault and being released from custody.
