"I am private criminal counsel, practicing in Toronto. I have referred my clients to UpFront Counselling since its inception, and have been consistently impressed with the professionalism and reliability of their services, as well as the compassion and care that they have shown my clients. My clients regularly report back to me that they have found the counselling services at UpFront personally meaningful. The counsellors at UpFront do a wonderful job of taking a teamwork approach to a client’s recovery, and provide thorough, detailed letters documenting the counselling trajectory that have proven extremely helpful in moving cases forward favourably.
