SSAIC offers individual counselling for survivors of sexualized violence (sexual abuse, sexual assault, and sexual harassment) and secondary survivors (a loved one who feels impacted by the survivor’s experience).
Our trauma-informed counselling services are available to people of all genders ages 12 and older.
We never investigate the validity of your experience, and we support your choices regarding medical care and the legal system.
SSAIC services are for short-term purposes; a total of 12 sessions will be offered to each client. SSAIC’s services are free of charge for all clients.
Our counsellors are governed by the ethics and standards laid out by the Saskatchewan Association of Social Workers. We believe you, and we believe in you. You direct the conversation and the session agenda based on your needs; our goals are your goals.
Counselling at SSAIC is conducted in a confidential manner. Information related to counselling is only released to other professionals with a client’s written permission, with the exception of other counsellors at SSAIC, and the counsellor’s supervisor.
Clients who have themselves been sexually violent are not able to access our services; this is for the safety and emotional well-being of our clients who attend SSAIC. For information about services that work with people who have been perpetrators of sexualized violence please contact 211 Saskatchewan, a free-of-charge information service available over the phone or online.
Preparation for Counselling
SSAIC services are approached from a place of non-judgement, and client safety is our priority. Questions asked during our intake and counselling processes are used to assess safety, identify existing supports, and to ensure the best outcome for our clients. The counselling process can be destabilizing, so we work to ensure that our clients have adequate supports in place.
