Stepping Stones Counselling

Kelowna & Penticton

The Stepping Stones Counselling Group is a team of specialized therapists, social workers and practitioners. We are dedicated to providing nurturing, creative and flexible healing environments and experiences. Services are offered to children, adolescents, adults, couples and families throughout the Okanagan region.

Our Approach

Every effort is made to match you with a counsellor you will feel comfortable with, and who has the skills you require.

As a team of counsellors we can also work together and collaborate in situations where more than one family member requires help. Members of your family may be supported by various therapists or groups at our centres. Our goal is to provide services that support the individual, the family and our community.

Counselling Services

Counsellors are available at offices in Penticton and  Kelowna locations.

Under 6 Autism services are available in Vernon & Kelowna.

Services include individual therapy for adults, children and adolescents as well as family and couples therapy. Counsellors have expertise in the areas of anxiety and depression, trauma and abuse, grief and loss, divorce or family transition, adoption and foster care, and self-esteem.
