Attention parents of neurodivergent youth in BC! For the month of October I will be running two groups: one on Fridays from 10-11am and another on Mondays from 4:30-5:30pm for neurodivergent youth ages 9-15.
A safe, accepting, inclusive, and low-demand virtual group for neurodivergent* youth to share their passions, interests, ideas, and personalities with others, while caring for their mind, body, and soul through discussions touching on mental health care facilitated by Camille Long, RCC and RSW.
Feel free to be yourself in this group. We want to celebrate and affirm our differences, interests, and similarities. Come and tell us about your favourite topic or just listen to the others. Camille will gently provide opportunities to connect with others, discuss challenges, strengths, and mental health issues as the group feels comfortable and without expectation of participation. This will allow for nervous system regulation, emotional safety, and facilitate a sense of belonging and acceptance.
To encourage a positive self-concept, self-esteem, and mental health
To encourage positive relationships
To build community and have fun
To celebrate and affirm individual strengths, interests, and goals
To facilitate a safe space for natural development to unfold in the context of safe attachment and healthy peer interaction
A quiet and safe space away from background noise for the privacy and emotional safety of the group
Bring your favourite stuffies, card decks, books, creations, inventions... Whatever brings you joy and makes you - you!
- As with all of my services, a reduced rate is available for those who need it
- The Autism Funding Unit can be invoiced directly for Counselling/Family Therapy (a Request to Pay must be submitted to AFU upon registration - Camille will send RTP information by email)
- Some extended medical plans allow for a Registered Social Worker or Registered Clinical Counsellor (receipts provided for reimbursement by your plan)
