A full range of affordable mental health services including peer support,
counselling and therapy – led by registered mental health professionals
Not every life problem requires an expensive counselling solution, and not every life problem is best helped by a mental health professional. At Divergent Counselling, we believe that different people can benefit from different tools, which is why we have introduced a range of counselling and therapy options. Our range of options are intended to minimize the cost of getting help (no need to pay over $100 an hour if you don’t need to), and to provide person-centred, holistic services.
Led by John Jackson, RPN, who is the CEO of Divergent Counselling, we have a range of professionals available to support you based on your need. Divergent Counselling is proud to introduce Peer Support Counsellors- people who have lived experience with mental health or addictions, who can support you on your journey. Additionally, we have a number of staff who belong to both regulated (social workers, psychiatric nurses) professions, and people who have a combination of experience and education but are not regulated staff. All the professionals working at Divergent Counselling are committed to working with you in a person-centred, ethical manner under the leadership of Mr. Jackson.
We’re currently accepting new clients for peer support, therapy & counselling.
