Motivated by a growing sense of responsibility to give back to community initiatives and promote the good work that they do, $3.50 from each and every Willow Tree Counselling session, from full-fee to pro-bono, is contributed to a local or national charity or program that serves to promote the mental, physical or social wellbeing of the people it serves. Charities chosen will rotate from time to time.

If this campaign inspires you to give back too, I’m heartened by that. Whether it is a “drop in the bucket,” the gift of your time, or a more substantial donation, this all makes a difference. Perhaps you may even be influenced to give back to your own mental health. Please do. The world needs more caring and self-caring people.

Willow Tree Counselling is currently supporting: Book Clubs For Inmates –Fraser Valley Institution for Women

All funds for the 2023 Drops in the Bucket Campaign will be donated to Book Clubs for Inmates, a registered charity organizing volunteer-led book clubs in federal penitentiaries, from British Columbia to Nova Scotia. Club members, who are incarcerated in minimum, medium and maximum-security facilities, meet monthly to discuss books of literary merit, purchased through donations. Donations can be made directly here:

“Eventually, most inmates re-enter society. By encouraging literacy while incarcerated, we help them develop empathy, listening skills and self-awareness.”
