Group Counselling

The Schlifer Clinic offers several open and closed counselling groups throughout the year.

Information on the groups is available below, including how to register if registration is required.  Please check back regularly to learn of added groups, or follow us on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter to receive updates.

There is strength in numbers. Sometimes the best thing is to sit down with other women who are also in your situation and learn from each other how to cope and recover.


We are bringing back our in-person groups in addition to virtual groups that are planned for the fall.
