Volunteer as a Counsellor

Are you looking for a way to help?

The LRCA is looking for retired counsellors and/or MA practicum students in counselling programs to help provide services for our Volunteer Counselling Program.

Safe word circle

This is a free program designed to provide access to counselling services for those who cannot afford to pay for counselling or do not have access to an EAP (Employee Assistance Program). All of our counsellors are supervised by our program coordinator, who is a registered clinical counsellor with a Master's degree in counselling psychology.

To learn more about this volunteer opportunity, please call the LRCA offices 250-245-3079.

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.
