We are pleased to announce that our counselling program is accepting new clients

The LRCA Counselling Program is designed to provide short-term, solution focused therapy for those without extended medical health benefits or an Employee Assistance Program (EAP).  All counsellors are supervised by the program coordinator and receive clinical supervision from a registered psychologist.

Over a series of 8 to 10 sessions, the program provides support to individuals struggling with the problems of daily life, including, but not limited to, anxiety, depression and relationship issues.

Fee: $20 a session.  However, no one is turned away because of an inability to pay.

Please call 250-245-3079 to book an intake appointment.



We are currently seeking volunteer counsellors to join the team.  If you are a counsellor, therapist, social worker or the equivalent, or a student completing a graduate level degree in counselling and are interested in our program, please call 250-245-3079 or email us for more information.

About Us

It all began early in 1992 at a meeting of the Ladysmith Inter-Agency Liaison Committee, a group of representatives from the government-mandated agencies formed in the early 1970s to maximize cooperation among the agencies while minimizing the duplication of services.

In 1992, this group pooled some of their own money and decided to form a non-profit association to try to deal with these recurring situations. This became the foundation of the Ladysmith Resources Centre Association.
