About Us

Professional Counselling and Therapy

Welcome to Centrepeace. We offer counselling to youth, adults, families, and adult relationships with a special focus on providing affirmative care to the 2SLGBTQIA+ community. Our services are provided in person, online and by telephone. Centrepeace Counselling & Therapy Services opened its doors as a solely-staffed, part-time practice in September 2019. It has expanded to a full-time group practice, with services being offered by a number of therapists and Master's degree students.

2SLGBTQIA+ Affirming Care

2SLGBTQIA+ affirming care is that which supports people to feel safe, healthy and comfortable with their gender and sexual identity. It is based on informed consent, which means that the client knows themself best, and it's the therapists' job to support the client to access the services they need in the safest way possible. Unpacking the role of gender in one's life and the effects of growing up transgender (“in the closet” or otherwise), can take a lifetime. A therapist can help you gain perspective and create a plan for personal growth. A therapist can also become an essential part of a healthy support system, especially for people with difficult family dynamics.

Frequently Asked Questions

For many people, making the decision to see a therapist comes after some thought and deliberation.

Please don't hesitate to contact us. We're happy to answer any of your questions.

  • What should I expect during my first appointment?
    The initial appointment involves a detailed assessment to understand you and your particular situation, current problems, background, and your strengths and resources in order to develop a plan for therapy. Our aim is to help you feel comfortable and safe to talk openly about your concerns.
  • How long are the sessions?
    Sessions are either 50 minutes or 80 minutes long and typically occur once every one or two weeks.
  • How long does therapy last?
    This is a reasonable question and difficult to predict. Research shows that the duration of therapy is variable and can be influenced by the specific therapy interventions used, the strength of the relationship with your therapist, as well as factors specific to you. These other factors may include your goals, personal characteristics, the nature, severity, chronicity, and complexity of the problem(s) you are experiencing, external factors such as what else is happening in your life and available social support, the extent to which you actively engage in therapy both inside and outside of sessions, and how comfortable you are with making changes.
  • How do I know if counselling is right for me?
    Counselling is an investment in yourself, and sometimes your relationships with others. It is a personal choice and is often most helpful when a person feels ready to commit to the journey. Feel free to contact us for a free 15-minute consultation to discuss what you're looking for and how we might be of support to you.
CentrePeaceLondon IconWe at Centrepeace respectfully acknowledge that we live and work on the traditional lands of the Anishinaabek, Haudenosaunee, Lūnaapéewak and Attawandaron people.
We acknowledge all the treaties from our area: the Two Row Wampum Belt Treaty of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy/Silver Covenant Chain; the Beaver Hunting Grounds of the Haudenosaunee NANFAN Treaty of 1701; the McKee Treaty of 1790, the London Township Treaty of 1796, the Huron Tract Treaty of 1827, with the Anishinaabeg, and the Dish with One Spoon Covenant Wampum of the Anishnaabek and Haudenosaunee.
We also recognize that there are three Indigenous Nations that are neighbours to London. They are the Chippewas of the Thames First Nation; Oneida Nation of the Thames; and the Munsee-Delaware Nation.
This land acknowledgement is a small step toward reconciliation and a reminder that we must take the necessary steps towards decolonizing our practices.
