With a new St. Catherines location for in-person counselling

After almost a two year hiatus, The Family Enhancement Centre (TFEC) once again welcomes Niagara-area clients in person.

Owner Dawn Griffith hopes to see TFEC’s location location thrive as a mental wellness hub for the Niagara region. “During the pandemic, our overall appointment bookings increased even though 90% of our counselling pivoted to take place online. Online is great, but with the mental health aftermath of COVID, many of our St. Catharines clients have been asking for a place to meet in person with our Niagara-based counselling team.”

So, if we have seen you before, we hope to see you again. Why not book with us for a Mental Wellness Tune-Up? After all, it’s just as important to maintain mental wellness as to work at improving it!

And for those of you testing the waters for the first time, here’s a quick run-down of what we do here at TFEC Niagara:

The Family Enhancement Centre offers mental health and counselling services to clients in St. Catharines and the Niagara Region. Our clients are families, children, youth, individuals and couples. Our St. Catharines location provides therapy aimed at helping people solve, cope with, or work through issues like depression, anxiety, interpersonal conflict, all kinds of losses, and many other issues.

Some clients proactively access counselling to maintain or improve mental wellness, working on self-development, life-long learning, emotional intelligence and communication skills.

Workshops are available online for our St. Catharines and Niagara counselling clients wishing to improve their anger management skills or seeking to become better co-parents when sharing parenting between two separate households.

The best thing our team does is provide compassionate and constructive listening. We’ll help equip you up with tools and resources that in the long run help you find your inherent strengths and capability to resolve issues.

Depending upon the counsellor available, some of the therapeutic styles or “modalities” offered could include: Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, EMDR and many others. Each modality has its strengths and weaknesses. Our will team will work you to select an approach that makes the most sense for you. It is not unusual to mix and match, depending on your goals.

We hope to hear from you or see you soon at our new St. Catharines office!

TFEC Niagara is located at 235 Martindale Rd, St. Catharines, ON L2N 3V7, Unit 22.
