Group Name: Tangerine Walk-in Counselling

Description: Tangerine Walk-In Counselling is a free service for children, youth and families who live in the Peel Region. Tangerine offers a unique single-session approach to counselling. As a walk-in service, we are able to support children, youth and families when they need it most. We help our clients develop a clear plan of action that recognizes and builds on their own strengths and abilities. Sometimes we refer our clients to other services but, in many cases, a single visit to Tangerine is all our clients need in order to feel better about their situation and take the necessary steps toward positive change.

Tangerine Walk-In Counselling is available free of charge to children and youth, up to their 18th birthday, and their parents, caregivers or adult supporters. Adolescents aged 12 to 17 may access this service independently. *** Tangerine Walk-In Counselling is only available to residents of the Region of Peel. We see families and their children for a wide range of reasons including:

  • Parents/caregivers/guardians frustrated with child/youth behaviours
  • Children, youth and families experiencing significant change such as a new school, a new relationship, or a new community
  • Challenges for children and youth that impact how they feel about themselves
    Issues for youth and/or their parents/caregivers relating to LGBT, including gender identity and sexual orientation
