Trauma & Critical Incident Response


Counselling for those experiencing recent traumatic incidents or the effects of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), including childhood sexual abuse is available for most individuals and groups. Burrows Consulting also provides critical incident stress debriefings (CISD) for the RCMP and Worksafe BC on an "on-call" basis following events that may involve fatalities or serious injuries.

Services are also available for victims of criminal assaults (physical or sexual assault, violent robbery) through arrangements with the Victims of Crime Assistance Program in British Columbia.

Residential School Syndrome is a documented set of symptoms experienced by those who attended the Indian Residential Schools run by the Churches and Canada. Physical, Sexual, Emotional and Cultural abuse created a legacy of trauma for thousands of Aboriginal Canadians, their children and their communities.

Services are available for individuals who wish to participate in counselling, family groups who are seeking peace and for communities looking to "break the cycle" of trauma-related addictions, violence and oppression.



Arrangements can be made for private fee-for-service counselling. Current rates are $95/hour. Confidentiality, privacy and discretion is assured in keeping with the provisions outlined by the College of Social Workers for British Columbia.

Sorry, referrals are not being accepted for private counselling at this time.



Burrows Consulting works directly with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP "E" Division) and WorkSafe BC to provide immediate intervention for critical incidents (CISD), and / or follow-up trauma and stress management counselling for members and employees.

Arrangements can also be made directly with other organizations, including schools, First Nations and employers to provide mental health assistance after suicides, assaults and other major events.
