Resilency Buiding



The Centre for Treatment of Sexual Abuse and Childhood Trauma is a community-based, incorporated, registered charity which provides specialized and accessible psychotherapy and counselling; offers professional training and education; and promotes public awareness in the areas of trauma and recovery.

Our Story


The Centre was established in 1991 to provide individual, family and couples therapy for those who have been sexually abused or otherwise traumatized or stressed by life experiences. Since then, the Centre has grown to become a major provider of trauma-centered services in the National Capital Region.
