Welcome to South Island Centre for Counselling and Training

Our History

South Island Centre for Counselling and Training Society was established as a registered charity on June 6, 1975. For 42 years, we have been providing professional, affordable, reliable and accessible mental health counselling and training services to those in need in the Capital Region District.

We are funded in part by the Province of BC, the City of Victoria, the United Way of Greater Victoria, Coast Capital, the Catholic Foundation of Vancouver Island, the Harbourside Rotary Club and donors.

Our Mission

South Island Centre for Counselling and Training provides professional, affordable mental health counselling services to all individuals, children, youth and families in support of personal, relational and spiritual wholeness.

What We Do

We provide professional, affordable, income-based counselling services for all individuals, children, youth, couples and families in need from experienced, clinical counsellors. We also offer supportive, professional level training for clients, professionals and the general public.

Some of our counsellors are volunteer counsellors helping us provide services. A counsellor will be assigned to you based on your individual needs and circumstances.

We’re also a training centre for students working on their Master degrees in helping professions like counselling, psychology and social work. 4-6 students are supervised and trained every year at South Island Centre.

For clergy and laypeople, pastoral counselling, spiritual direction, and pastoral care team training is also available. Call the Centre directly for more information on these services.
