April 2022 is Counselling & Psychotherapy Month
This year’s inaugural Counselling & Psychotherapy Month is brought to you by Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association and Lead Partner, Owl Practice. Together, we are celebrating the invaluable work counsellors, counselling therapists and psychotherapists carry out every day across Canada.
