Camp Kerry’s Society Counselling Services

Hope Lives Here

Our Team

The Camp Kerry Counselling Team is a group of interdisciplinary therapists with expertise, experience and skill in helping individuals and families navigate the “upside-down world” of life-threatening illness, grief and loss. We offer compassionate spaces where people can freely express their individual experiences and find connection with others who have faced similar life challenges. We believe deeply in the healing power of a compassionate community that brings facilitators and participants together into a shared human experience of belonging, as we search for meaning in our losses and find the hope we need to move forward.

Currently, our Group Counselling Services are available at a variety of locations throughout the Lower Mainland of British Columbia. Individual and Family Sessions are offered at our Head Office in New Westminster, BC. Home visits can be arranged.

Our Fees

In order to sustain our professional services and programs for children, youth and families we request that all participants  make some level of program fee contribution. Our individual and family counselling rates are set in accordance with the recommended fee guidelines put forward by the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors ($130/hour). Many Extended Health Care Plans cover the fees of Registered Clinical Counsellors.

For those in need of financial assistance, we are more than happy to talk with you about making a contribution that fits with your comfort level. This simply involves a short, confidential phone call to our office to discuss your concerns with our Administrative Coordinator. You can be assured that no individual or family is ever turned away from a Camp Kerry program or service due to an inability to pay.
