Peterborough Youth Services (PYS) provides counselling and support to young people aged 10 – 18 and their families. PYS is a non-profit, social service counselling agency located in Peterborough, Ontario.

PYS is excited to introduce a new service for youth! If you’ve had an intake appointment and are waiting for service, you can call the agency at 705-743-1681 or text 705-559-9853 to schedule a single session with one of our counsellors to jump-start your counselling. There are spots available every week! After your session, you can choose to stay on the waiting list for longer-term counselling. As always, you are welcome to connect with us at any time to discuss your needs while you wait for service.  

At this time, the single session service is only available for youth who are already on PYS’ wait list. We are planning to expand the service to be available to all youth– stay tuned for updates!
