Restorative Wellness Counselling

Providing mental health supports through low-barrier, accessible, and culturally sensitive counselling services. 

Bethlehem Centre is proud to host the Restorative Wellness Project (RWP) which offers full-spectrum counselling services focused on mindfulness and self-compassion. RWP is committed to decolonizing mental health and addiction services, creating a safe space for traumatized and minority clients.

Their programs combine modern mental health practices with culture, relationships, mindfulness, and spirituality.

We use the magic of intergenerational wisdom in our therapeutic circles which are co-facilitated by Elders and Wisdom keepers. Group programs provide stabilization, social support, and deeper healing or maintenance care.

Skilled clinicians offer various gold-standard mental health modalities. They offer Individual counselling, case management, and resource connections aiming to remove barriers for clients of all cultures and financial situations, promoting inclusivity.

Modalities include:

  • Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT),
  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR),
  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).

Culture, mindfulness and spirituality are weaved into all services offered.

The project integrates culturally-enriched community-based groups, mentorship and individualized care to help clients reclaim the Sacred and experience comfort and safety in their wellness journey.

A desire for regular attendance and a minor donation are the only requirements for non-insured clients.

Their goal is to remove barriers to support for people of all cultures and to assist individuals in reclaiming the Sacred through culturally-enriched community based groups, mentorship and counseling. This is achieved through working in the indigenous community, leveraging proven model to reach priority populations.

  • Remote locations/reserves
  • Resicential school survivors and impacted family members
  • Metis (status and no-status)
  • First Nations
  • Inuit
