At Christian Counselling Ottawa (CCO) we are committed to providing professional and accessible counselling and psychotherapy to assist people in effectively managing life's challenges.
Professional Therapist/Counsellors: Our therapist/counsellors provide individual, couple, family and group counselling according to their areas of expertise. Each therapist/counsellor holds a Master’s degree in a counselling related discipline, and each is eligible for membership in one or more professional counselling associations. CCO therapists are registered with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario.
Our services are available to all: While our therapist/counsellors are capable of integrating the principles of Christian faith with their ever present psychotherapeutic practice standards, the level of integration is entirely dependent on the client’s personal views and wishes. We serve people of all faiths as well as those whose views do not include a faith or faith related perspective.
Geographic Accessibility: From a geographic accessibility perspective, we provide quality services from our main office on Glencoe Street, our divisional offices conveniently located in the eastern, western and southern parts of Ottawa as well as from divisional offices located in Pembroke and Williamsburg. Due to COVID-19, our in-person sessions are limited and occur at our main office.
Physical Accessibility: Our main office and most divisional offices are fully accessible for the mobility impaired. Our accessibility policy and service delivery are compliant with AODA.
Financial Accessibility: Financial accessibility relates to affordability. As a committed not-for-profit service provider and recognized charity, we seek to provide high quality services at minimum cost. We use a sliding scale based on gross household income and the number of people living on that income to determine client fees. When assigning fees, we reserve the right to request proof of household income.
Thanks to the generosity of donors and a modest fundraising capacity, we are often able to offer limited subsidies to individuals who would not otherwise be able to afford even the modest fees we charge for sessions.
CCO offers therapy services for adults, couples, families, adolescents and children which are covered by most insurance programs and some EAP providers. Please inquire at Intake regarding your Plan eligibility.
