She's really passionate about leading people who feel lost and damaged, back to health, strength and competence!

To that end you will find some differences in the CPPC Centre experience.

What's special about the CPPC Centre?

The Centre itself is not an office, its an apartment, chosen to increase the confidentiality and comfort of our clients.

Parents have the option of bringing their children, if they can occupy themselves in the play area, so that child care availability & cost is not a barrier to attending sessions. Mothers with nursing babies are welcome.

We offer a glass of filtered water, or a cup of tea/coffee upon request and limited kitchen facilities to warm a bottle.

Our full washroom is in the apt. not 'down the hall'.

Our parking is free and discreet.

Our signage is minimal and discreet for added confidentiality.

Our appointments are a full hour, not the usual 50 minutes.

Our one limitation, is that at present, we are not wheelchair accessible at our C.P. office.Clients needing full accessibility can be seen at or office in Smiths Falls hospital.

Our services are covered by major Insurance Companies (check your coverage).

We also offer Self-Esteem/Self-Confidence Building Workshops for women and Gr. 7&8 girls, upon request.

Allison is available to speak to your business group, club, class, or community group about current psycho-social issues, life-balance strategies, and parenting strategies.
