Cyber Bullying

With online communication being the primary form of communication for most teens and young adults, cyberbullying has become a reality for many. Although we may not be able to physically see our bully, their words can lead to serious emotional harms and have a powerful negative impact on our lives. Our caring professionals can provide positive guidance during this tough and difficult time. No one should have to suffer in silence nor alone. We will support you through this challenge by providing you and your family with the tools needed to manage and come out on top. Remember, others words and behaviours towards you, are NOT a REFLECTION of who you are! What we do learn though, is that people who treat others poorly, unfortunately are the ones who have something wrong with them.

At Words Of Hope Counselling, we provide individualized one-on-one sessions to address your unique needs and provide you with realistic solutions. Don’t let your bully’s negativity control your life. Let us help you take back control. Please feel welcome to call or email, and we will respond within 24 hours because we know if you are reaching out, you are ready to take the next step, and we don’t want to miss the opportunity to help you. You will get through this!
