Sexual Violence Healing Centre

Sonhatsi:wa Sexual Violence Healing Centre counselling and healing services provide holistic processes based on Ogwehoweh teachings integrating mind, body, and spirit. The teachings, combined with mainstream counselling techniques, provide a basis for helping individuals experiencing and/or coping with the impacts or secondary impacts of sexual violence. This is explored in a caring, non-judgmental way. The counselling process is based on the needs of the individual.

Sonhatsi:wa provides one on one counselling, educational & therapeutic groups, advocacy & appropriate referrals for clients to wrap around services as required.

Becoming your true self is our hope for all those who enter: to be who you truly are, to own your true goodness and potential which is our most natural state of being beyond the pain, hurt, and anger.
