Pathways believes that emotional support is key to the success for young people making the transition to adulthood. Through our counselling program, clients identify and address barriers that are/or have prevented them from moving towards their goals.
The counsellor works with the team to decrease trauma exposure and increase protection of the youth. Counselling is a wonderful tool to help young people move from the pain of the past towards a resilient future. Through this process the youth are provided with the message that we care through consistency, empathetic listening and by connecting with their story of pain.
The program provides youth with a safe setting, independent from other aspects of their life, for them to contemplate where they are emotionally, cognitively, socially and where they want to go and how to narrow that gap. The counselling program is available to all youth and families involved in any of the Pathways programs.
