I started this monthly Peer Support Group in January 2022; we continue into 2023. This is designed for Counsellors and Therapists – new participants welcome at any time. The CCPA has pre-approved 1 CEC/monthly session for CCPA members. For information please contact me directly.

Climate Cafe. In-person Gathering, third Thursday of the Month, Christ Church, Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. The Climate Cafe approach was developed by the Climate Psychology Alliance – UK (CPA-UK).
