Willow's Bend Counselling Centre, Inc.

Founded in 2010 by Barbara Woods, Ph.D., CCC.

Willow’s Bend is a leading provider of counselling & psychotherapy services in south central Manitoba.

We are located in downtown Portage la Prairie.

About Us

We specialize in providing services to children, teens, adults, couples, and families.  Our interventions are evidence-based which means there is science to support their effectiveness.  However, we are also flexible enough to meet the cultural and creative needs of our diverse clientele, particularly Indigenous clients.

Providers

Our providers are certified by the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association. In addition, we continually work toward improving our skills and obtaining intervention specific credentials as well.  We are able to provide a wide variety of evidence based interventions for children, adolescents, and adults.

Services

Services provided include individual, child and adolescent, family, and couples counselling.  We rely on a variety of interventions including sandtray, play therapy, structured sensory interventions, cognitive behavioral therapy, Mindfulness Integrated Cognitive Behavior Therapy, and general mindfulness.

Collaborative...Professional...Inviting...Natural.

We take extra steps to ensure that our services are collaborative with clients and referrals sources.  Working together to meet the end goals for each client is so important for services to be effective.

We provide a high degree of professional services though our policies, interactions, and additional training we attend to continually improve our skills.  Our location and interactions are inviting especially for children and people who may be seeking services for the first time.

We understand that when a person reaches out for help, it takes a great deal of courage.  We approach our clients in a natural, down-to-earth style even when using more complicated strategies.  Clients from many different backgrounds are welcomed and feel a deep level of acceptance and regard for their individual values and beliefs.
