Individual Counselling

PEIRSAC Counselling Services are:

  • For adults (over age 16) of all genders who have experienced recent or historic sexual assault and childhood sexual abuse
  • Free of charge
  • Confidential
  • Provided by professional therapists who are experienced and trained in trauma recovery

REQUESTING COUNSELLING SERVICES
To make a request for counselling, call (902) 368-8055. Please leave a confidential voice mail message which includes: your name, number and whether we can leave a detailed message at that number. A therapist will get back to you as soon as possible. When a therapist returns your call, she will ask you a series of questions to gain an appreciation of your situation. All potential clients will be invited to come in for an initial consultation session. This initial session provides support and the opportunity to explore whether we are the right service at the right time. If we have a wait list, you will be advised of this. Recent assault victims will receive priority

Unfortunately, our counselling program is not able to operate a crisis support line and therefore we are not able to guarantee that a therapist will be available for immediate response. If you are feeling overwhelmed, please contact your nearest emergency department hospital or call 911. See our two brochures "Our Services for Survivors of Sexual Assault" and "Our Services for Survivors of Childhood Sexual Abuse" under Educational Resources.

PEIRSAC is seeking an individual with a Master’s degree in social work, counselling psychology, or similar, with current good standing with a PEI professional regulator. The ideal incumbent will have at least three years of trauma-focused counselling with Indigenous (preferably Mi’kmaq) clients, and therefore knows the history and traumatic intergenerational impacts of colonization, including (but not limited to) residential schools, the sixties scoop, and murdered and missing Indigenous women and girls. The incumbent must be able to demonstrate how they work from a therapeutic approach that is decolonizing, intersectionally feminist, strengths-based, person-centred, non-pathologizing, and tailored to each person’s individual context, e.g. racialized and gendered experiences, socio- economic class, dis/ability, sexual/affectional orientation, spiritual and cultural worldview.
