Catholic Family Services Peel-Dufferin (CFSPD) is a multi-service counselling agency that has been providing services in the Region of Peel since 1981. Our mandate is to strengthen families and help stop family violence. We are an accredited organization with Family Services Ontario and a member agency of Catholic Charities.
Agency services are available to individuals who are struggling with problems such as depression, anxiety, grief and other life stressors; families who are experiencing marital difficulties, parent-child conflict, developmental transitions and cultural adjustments.
Our counselling services are available in English, French, Hindi, Kannada, Malayalam, Mandarin, Polish, Punjabi, Spanish, Urdu and Tamil.
Support groups, individual counselling, couple and family work are available for adults who have experienced trauma through childhood abuse.
Our programs include comprehensive services to families experiencing woman abuse: support groups for women who have been assaulted by their partners, groups for men who have used abuse in their relationships, and specialized programs offered through the HEAL Network for children and adolescents exposed to woman abuse.
Catholic Family Services is proud to be a training facility offering Master level students in counselling programs, post Master's level graduates and foreign trained professionals the opportunity for field placements and clinical experience through our Practicum Training Program in Couple & Family Therapy.
Fees for our counselling services are determined on a sliding scale based on family size and income. This helps us to set fees that are affordable. However, no one is refused services because of an inability to pay and some programs are offered free of charge.
