Welcome to the Citizens’ Counselling Centre website.

The Greater Victoria Citizens’ Counselling Centre offers affordable, accessible counselling to adult residents of Greater Victoria. All counselling is offered by volunteer counsellors trained and supervised by the Centre. We have a sliding fee scale based on family income.

We offer individual counselling, couples counselling, and group counselling. Our groups run three times each year (Fall, Winter and Spring) and include self esteem groups, anger management groups, and groups with a focus on stress, anxiety and depression.

The Centre began in 1969 and since then we have worked with over 22,000 people.

If you are struggling with life issues and hope that seeing a counsellor might make life easier, please call us. We are here for you.





Tip a Fool

Citizens’ Counselling Centre requests the honour of your presence at the eighth annual gathering of the fun-spirited, community-conscientious and generous-of-the-pocket.

Sat April 2, 2016
The Union Club

An evening of fine food & wine, celebrity fool-making, out-loud laughter, and extraordinary treasures – all to benefit Citizens' Counselling Centre.

Our Tip a Fool Gala Fun-raiser is a major source of revenue for the Centre. We would be ever so greatful if you would support us through it. Buy a ticket, buy a table, donate an auction item, or help spread the word on Facebook and through email. It may well be the most fun way to support mental health in our community.

Black Tie & Boa, optional
