Our Story

Positive Thought Counselling

We are a Toronto based grassroots organization providing counselling  services to enrich the lives of vulnerable individuals and provide coping strategies in navigating the daily stresses of life. We also provide creative workshops for community agencies, offering a variety of workshops that are customized to meet the needs of at-risk and racialized groups because the need is apparent now than ever before. 

Our professional development workshops can help community workers with program development, community outreach and intercultural awareness to ensure your organization is addressing the needs of marginalized groups from an inter-disciplinary perspective.   


As a husband and wife team, we have over 10 years of experience  working in social services and community development. We see first hand the negative impacts structural barriers has on at-risk populations. Through our lens and commitment, we are dedicated to: 

  1. Promoting positive skill development, coping strategies and awareness of community resources
  2. Increasing opportunities for mentorship and role modeling 
  3. Being a resource for community organizations to understand the multiple variables and barriers that are experienced by vulnerable individuals
  4. Teaching effective strategies to help overcome the daily stresses of life
  5. Utilizing an inter-disciplinary approach to develop workshop material and content
