Since we cannot [readily] change our reality, let us change the eyes through which we see reality. – Nikas Kazantzakia


The Tipping Point team has been helping people achieve change and positive life plans for over 45 cumulative years. We know that life can be hard. Sometimes you need someone to walk with you from the place where you are to the place where you want to be. Allow us to help you ‘put the pieces together’!

Bringing together the fullness of resources from the behaviour consulting field alongside the supports of clinical counselling, Tipping Point Consulting and Counselling Services is uniquely positioned to offer a holistic approach to help you cross over barriers to reach your life goals.

We not only seek to be a tipping point in the lives of the clients we serve, but TPCCS partners with Little Warriors, a national charitable organization that is committed to the awareness, prevention and treatment of those impacted by childhood sexual abuse. 10% of all our company earnings goes to support this initiative. Children all over Canada experience physical abuse, sexual abuse, emotional abuse, neglect and are exposed to domestic violence on a daily basis. Our work seeks to speak up for those who have no voice and to care for those who are without hope. For more information, visit

Tipping Point Personnel are trained workshop facilitators and are able to arrange for workshops to come to your area.
