Ubuntu Counselling Centre
Together We Succeed.
Ubuntu is an African word for “human kindness” and is rooted in humanist African philosophy, where the idea of community is one of the building blocks of society.
Ubuntu embraces the essential human virtues of compassion, warmth, openness, inclusiveness, diversity, personal dignity and inner goodness inherent in human beings. This forms the guiding principles of Ubuntu Counselling Centre (UCC) with programming to address some of the challenges that confront our community. Ubuntu strives to create a safe, caring, supportive, and inclusive environment that embraces the rich cultural diversity of our community and enhances the well-being of every individual that comes through the Ubuntu Counselling Centre.
Not everyone has the access to mental health support and services that’s right for them. We are working hard to make sure this is not the case. Throughout our history, we have supported people facing multiple forms of discrimination, such as discrimination because of their mental health problems as well as their ethnicity, race, religion, sexuality or disability. UCC is built to eliminate difficulties individuals face in accessing culturally relevant services in the Windsor-Essex Region. We are driven by the Ubuntu philosophy – the belief in a universal bond of sharing that connects all humanity. With both individual and group clinical service offerings, UCC wellness can provide you, your family, your company, your school, and our community with an array of healing and support through our mindful and authentic approach.
UCC is welcoming
and open to all.
