The Ottawa Pastoral Counselling Centre was founded in the belief that providing advanced counseling for people with a wide range of needs is a necessary ministry of the Christian community. Rooted in the Christian tradition and its values, the Ottawa Pastoral Counselling Centre provides support to anyone in need, regardless of religion, gender or race. Our aim is to provide counseling which will help individuals or families regain their sense of direction in a time of need. The OPC provides counselling in many areas including individual needs or issues; concerns of marriage and family, including communication, separation and divorce, blending families, etc.; depression, stress, grief and bereavement; alcoholism and addictions; and, identity issues. The Centre charges a fee for its services, however some of these may be covered by health insurance plans.
