Child and Youth Counselling

Child and Youth Counselling

OCISO’s Counselling Program is uniquely equipped to provide counselling services to the immigrant and refugee population in Ottawa. We offer clinical counselling to culturally diverse clients with migration and culture-related issues. Children and Youth Counsellors provide short term counselling to immigrant and refugee children, youth and their families. We employ a wide variety of intervention techniques, which allow for a culturally responsive therapeutic process. We do not just “respect” our client’s culture – we incorporate that culture into the therapeutic process. These services can be provided at OCISO locations, virtually or out in community spaces such as schools. Clients are provided 6-8 sessions as well as connections to other service providers to help adress their settlement needs. 

Eligibility - open to permanent residents and limited capacity to all other immigrant classes 

Current Languages: English, Arabic and Urdu.
