Counselling Services

The Charlene Reaveley Children’s Charity offers 100% funded counselling sessions for both children and their immediate family members after experiencing the loss of a loved one.  This resource was the initial vision when the charity was created in 2011. The Charlene Reaveley Children’s Charity opened the Counselling and Resource Centre in Port Coquitlam in 2015 and can provide counselling out of the Centre.

Someone to support you in your time of need

CRCCS works alongside counsellors who specialize in supporting children and adults through grieving. Clients are not limited to seeing these counsellors.  If you are located outside the tri-cities area, already seeing a counsellor, or request a counsellor specialized in specific areas, funding will still be approved.  Counselling sessions are funded for clients seeing a new counsellor or continuing sessions with an existing counsellor.   A counsellor is any therapist recognised in the province of BC, and proof of certification is required before approval.

Up to ten 100% funded counselling sessions can be arranged upon review and acceptance of the charities' criteria. Payment for the counselling sessions is arranged with CRCCS and the counsellor.  No payment is required on behalf of the client.  Unless stated otherwise by the counsellor, a 24-hour notice for cancelled appointments is required.  A fee will be charged for no-shows or appointments that are cancelled with less than 24-hour notice.  It is the responsibility of the client to pay the fees for late cancellations and/or no-shows.  The Charlene Reaveley Children’s Charity does not cover these fees.
