Social Worker

Counselling and service navigation is available with our Social Worker at Brock Community Health Centre for those who live in Brock Township and surrounding area.  We offer a short term counselling model for individuals, families and couples to work on specific goals. Clients can be supported with mild to moderate mental health issues, day to day coping and learning new strategies.

Our counselling supports are best suited to clients who are voluntary and willing to work towards goals within a short term model. Clients should not be receiving counselling elsewhere.

At this time, due to COVID-19, all counselling appointments will be held via telephone or virtually.

If you feel you would benefit from counselling supports, please reach out!  Contact and speak to one of our medical secretaries (705-432-3322) to self-refer or speak to your primary care provider at your next visit for a referral. Please know there may be a wait for counselling services and we aim to contact you as soon as possible by telephone to discuss your referral.

Group Sessions via Zoom

We are looking at hosting virtual group sessions.  What topics would you be interested in hearing about?  We’d love your input!  Please take a moment to complete this quick survey:  https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/JV7J7TT
