We will work with Management and staff to clarify roles and responsibilities and resolve personal issues that may be interfering with business operations.
We offer a variety of workshops for parents, care providers, counsellors, early interventionists, and teachers. Topics range from attachment, improving relationships, to challenging behaviours. All workshops are adapted to meet the specific organization's goals and the needs of the participants. Fees are $1,000 for a 6 hour day and $500 for presentations up to 3 hours long. Cost of travel and accommodations will be added for workshops outside the Comox Valley. Discounted rates are available for nonprofit societies.
We have moved to a new automated payment program for convenience. Your credit card will automatically be charged and a receipt issued to your email. If you choose to opt out of this payment option, we also accept cash, cheques, credit cards, Pay Pal and e-mail transfers. Payment is due at the conclusion of each counselling session. Registration fees for group counselling or training workshops are due when you register. Consultation and contract fees are billed at the end of each month.
