Child and Youth
Our goal at Langley Youth and Family Services is to help clients develop the skills and tools needed to not only overcome challenges but to thrive.
Our program offers early prevention counselling to children, youth, and families in Langley, with funding from the local community. We understand that young people are currently facing unique challenges that can be difficult to manage. As Registered Clinical Counsellors, our goal is to partner with families and skillfully address these issues through collaborative efforts.
Children and youth who are referred by the RCMP or a community partner are eligible for 12 counselling sessions funded by the Township and City of Langley.
“Families who connect with our services find LYFS to be a space where they feel safe, respected, and ultimately equipped.”
What We Can Do
Funded by the local community, our program provides early prevention counselling services to children, youth, and families in Langley.

Children and youth may attend counselling on their own, together with a parent (s), or as a family depending on the needs and goals of the individual. The counsellor working with the family will collaboratively determine with each client who needs to attend. We do require consent for services from all guardians and that at least one guardian attends the first session.
We receive referrals form the Langley RCMP, family doctors, school counsellors and administrators, social workers, and other Langley mental health agencies. Families may not, at this point, self-refer.
Children and youth referred to LYFS are seen by a Registered Clinical Counsellor for up to 12 sessions.
