We offer counselling to 2SLGBTQIA+ youth in Waterloo Region. Those who live in Waterloo Region and face barriers paying for counselling may be eligible for subsidies.

The OK2BME program is operated by KW Counselling Services. OK2BME started as a set of free, confidential services for kids and teens wondering about their sexuality or gender identity. They may identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, gender-variant, or they may just have questions.  Services include: LGBTQ2-positive Individual and Family Counselling, LGBTQ2+ Social and Recreational Youth Group, Professional Consultation and Collaboration, Public Education and Training and Supporting establishment of Gay-Straight Alliances.

OK2BME’s services are provided by the staff and supervised placement students at KW Counselling Services. All of the psychotherapists at KW Counselling Services have Masters level education and experience working with kids, teens, and families on a variety of topics. The placement students at KW Counselling Services come from Master of Social Work or counselling programs.
