Resources: COVID-19 Supports for Children and Families During Social Distancing

During this challenging time, I wanted to have a space to share resources about Covid-19 and children with the kids and families in our community.

This page will be updated on an ongoing basis, as resources are found and developed. You will find stories, workbooks, colouring pages, and other general and relevant information.

A reminder, we do continue to offer virtual counselling and therapy supports at this time. For more information or to schedule an appintment, please visit our booking page here.

Please feel free to share this post and resources with those you think will benefit.
