Crime Victim Assistance Counselling
For any women, children, adolescents or men that have been the victim of a crime and have been awarded counselling benefits through the Crime Victim Assistance Program, we have experienced trauma counsellors that can help people resolve the traumatic stress that has resulted from the incident.
Traumatic stress can severely disrupt a person’s functioning and well-being. It is common to experience difficulty sleeping, panic attacks, withdrawal from every day activities, low mood and hypervigilance.
Our trauma counsellors have extensive training in helping people that have experienced a trauma. The therapy models used by our trauma counsellors include sensory-motor processing, focusing, eye movement de-sensitization and reprocessing and cognitive behavior therapy for trauma.
If you have been the victim of a crime and have not applied for counselling benefits, you can apply online.
If you are applying for CVAP and would like some assistance with your application, please book a time with one of our counsellors.
Our services are available to the LGBTQ population.
If you have experienced interpersonal violence or historical abuse and identify as male, please contact our general counselling line at 604-355-5035.
