That is how the collaboration I am about to share with you started.
It went something like this….Dr. Susannah-Joy Schuilenberg with William & Associates Counselling Services was talking to Rebecca from You Are Collective. One of them mentioned something along the lines of …. “what if there was a gift card that people could use for counselling. It would mean that a family member or loved one could literally give the gift of counselling to someone in need!”
A few conversations later and William & Associates Counselling, You Are Collective and The Local Gift Card were officially working together to make a “what if” a reality!
Here is what we are creating…..
An inclusive counselling initiative that would allow people in need to have access to affordable counselling. Where the recipient could choose from over six different counselling places to ensure they were able to find a counsellor that worked for them. An initiative that would allow loved ones to give a gift card with the sole purpose of it being used to receive counselling. Donated gift cards would be distributed throughout the community to help decrease waitlist for non-urgent counselling.
Our initiative is ready to go except for one thing… a name. Our collaboration has allowed us get everything else organized but none of us are able to come up with a good name. That is why we are reaching out to the community for help.
PLEASE NOTE that as of today The Local Gift Card can be used at William & Associates Counselling Services to access affordable counselling or any other of their counselling services.
