Is your child paralyzed by anxiety and fear?

Do they get overwhelmed by new situations or difficult tasks?

There is great concern within our society that children and youth are lacking tools and resilience for dealing with challenging circumstances and life events.  Island Family Counselling Centre is offering groups for children and youth to help them develop tools to resist perfectionistic ideas and manage debilitating anxiety. If you would like your son or daughter to participate in one of our Anti-Anxiety Groups please contact 250-598-0544 or
