At Anchoridge Counselling we believe the anchor symbolizes support and strength to get you through the difficult times in your life - we will be your anchor.
We care about helping you.
So much so, we require all of our counsellors to practice self-care themselves, so they can connect with you on a deep and meaningful level both in session and in their personal lives.
We've been there too.
Our counsellors understand the value of human connection in healing and overcoming hardship, in part because of their own struggles in life and working with enough clients to understand a vast variety of issues.
We get it. Nothing makes a bigger difference than having someone else truly understand.
You are not alone.
Mental illness and personal struggle feel isolating because they are internal. It naturally feels like no one understands, that no one's going through the same thing and that because it feels that way, it must be your fault.
That's why we are here to support you through your journey. You don't have to bear this burden alone.
Your secret is safe with us.
Confidentiality is always of the utmost importance, but not everyone understands why.
We know your safety and character may be at risk and the discrimination/stigma you may face otherwise. Above all else, we value your trust, safety and the safety of those around you.
Our goal is to connect you with the right mental health professional who will strive to empower you to reach a breakthrough within six to eight sessions. At Anchoridge, we know the value of giving compassionate, qualified counsellors the chance to work with the population they know best. That is why if you have the courage to share your story and the willingness to work, your counsellor will develop an individualized treatment plan to give you the understanding, support, and tools you need to overcome.
Our careful, highly selective hiring process for counsellors means you can rest assured that you are receiving the highest standard of quality care from the moment you arrive — and after you leave. What makes Anchoridge unique is that our work doesn’t end when the session does. We are committed to finding all the resources you need to overcome the obstacles in your life.
