No Names,
No Judgement,
Just Support

We provide free, confidential, and non-judgmental 24 hour support to all survivors of violence including female-identified, male-identified, and members of the transgender community.  We advocate against violence in the community at large and promote prevention through community education.

In-person counselling is available at our Oakville Location.  We understand that women experience oppression in varying configurations and intensity depending on their individual backgrounds and this may have an additional impact on those already facing sexual abuse. Our counsellors work from an anti-racist and anti-oppressive viewpoint to provide assessments that are non-directive and non-judgemental.

The individual counselling program at SAVIS provides trauma-informed care from an inclusive feminist framework to support all survivors, including women, men, trans, and gender-diverse individuals impacted by sexual violence.

Residents of Halton may access up to 18 free, confidential counselling sessions from a compassionate and professional community-based counsellor. For family members or friends supporting a loved one affected by violence, we offer up to eight sessions to provide tools and
language to help in the healing process.

Group Counselling

In addition to one-on-one counselling, we offer multiple group counselling sessions yearly. Each group will have a unique focus built on the feedback we receive from the community. Among others, topics may include: trauma response and psychoeducation; healthy relationships; coping and grounding skills; and family dynamics.

Public Education

Our Public Education Program facilitates a range of presentations, workshops and trainings on topics related to understanding the many facets of gender-based violence and sexual exploitation.

All workshops and presentations are inclusive, interactive, and modifiable in order to suit your needs, and reach a broad audience as we are committed to proactive, preventative education for all.

Public Education Mission

The aim of public education at SAVIS is to use education and awareness to end all forms of violence. SAVIS offers public education workshops and presentations to schools, community members, and service providers  in Halton.
