Karunia: Warm Hearts, Warm Home

Pipestone Flyer

    February is Psychology Awareness month and Heart Health Awareness month. To celebrate, Karunia Counselling of Leduc is offering free workshops for the community. Karunia Counselling is a small, local team of psychologists and counsellors trained to address the mental well-being of individuals, couples and families. Its collective track record is rich in success stories of wellbeing, happiness and restored relationships. Each course lasts for four weeks. 

    In September of 2004, Ms. Joanne Koopmans began work with the FCSS Family Counselling Clinic in Leduc. In June of 2006, she became a, ‘registered provisional psychologist.’ In September of the same year, she opened up a private practice, Karunia Counselling Service, in the City of Leduc.

    In March of 2008, Karunia Counselling (KC) entered into a contract with the City of Leduc and Leduc County to provide counselling services to residents. Contracts for Beaumont and Devon were added when FCSS in these towns achieved a separate status.

    In July of 2009, KC relocated with more counsellors to a newly renovated location in the City of Leduc’s downtown core. Following a growing need in that area, on March 1st, 2014, Karunia Counselling opened its Wetaskiwin office, with several counsellors on staff, some of them on short-term contracts.

    The public is invited to these FREE Karunia Counselling Leduc classes for February:    

“Couples” on Tuesdays, February 3-24, 7:30pm – 9pm.

“No Drama Parenting” on Wednesdays, on February 4-25, 6:30pm – 8:30pm.

“Boundaries/Not In My Backyard”, on Wednesdays, February 4-25, 10:30am – 12pm.

“Emotional Regulation” for ages 8+ on Thursdays, February 5-26, 6pm – 7:30pm.

“What do I do with my Anger?” on Mondays, February 2 – March 9, 7:00 – 8:30pm.

    For more information, interested individuals are encouraged to call Karunia’s Leduc office at 587-274-3939, email their request or question to Karunia.appt@gmail.com or visit its website, www.karunia.ca. Wetaskiwin residents wanting to take advantage of this great offer can dial 1-844-337-3939.

    Thank you, Karunia Counselling, for contributing to the overall wellbeing of our citizens!
