John Howard Society of London & District

Counselling Program

Counselling is provided to individuals who are involved, or are at risk of involvement in the criminal justice system and their respective families. The John Howard Society of London and District offers short and long term counselling services.  Counselling services are offered in-person, or remotely.

The length and frequency of the counselling sessions varies based on clients’ needs and progress.  Social workers engage the client in a therapeutic relationship to assess risk and needs and to develop an intervention plan.

The John Howard Society offers a crisis intervention service whereby clients are seen for brief service, usually the same day.  Clients are assisted in managing their crisis, solving problems and developing new coping skills.

Referrals are accepted from all sources including self-referrals.  Counselling services are provided at no cost. The program is funded by United Way Elgin Middlesex.
