WINGS counselling offers professional support to people who are struggling with relationship problems, depression, anxiety, trauma and other problems in life. We work one-on-one with adults at our office in New Westminster, or online through teleconferencing. We also provide couples counselling and groups.
As well as seeing people who refer themselves, we also work with WorkBC, the Crime Victim Assistance Program (CVAP) and ICBC clients. Many of our services can be covered by extended health plans.
Our counsellors have special training in the area of domestic abuse. We are supported by, and connected with WINGS Fellowship Ministries.
WINGS (Women in Need Gaining Strength) Fellowship Ministries was established in 1997. The society was born as a Christian response to demonstrate responsibility toward the issues of social justice in our society today, specifically in the area of violence against women and children.
WINGS operates Monarch Place Transition House, Chrysalis Place Second Stage Program, WISHES and MENtor support groups, two outreach programs, and this counselling program. Over the years, our work in the counselling program has grown to reach a broader selection of people, to become a general counselling program open to welcome all.
