HOW COUNSELLING WORKS
Each session varies in approach depending on the individual, and all sessions are kept confidential. Everyone is welcome at the MC, and we will do our best to be of service to you. If a matter is beyond the scope of faith-based counselling, we will be happy to refer you to the best and most appropriate avenues for help and assistance.
