Carter’s Counselling was founded by Katharine Carter, who is a social worker by training. Katharine recognized that, naturally, many services and supports exist in large urban centers such as Saskatoon, however access to resources is more limited in smaller communities such as Martensville and area. Katharine lives locally and has made it her mission to ensure that Martensville and surrounding areas also have access to counselling, mental health services and other resources. Carter’s Counselling was created out of this social work value: that everyone should have equal access to services, regardless of where they live.
Since the business’s inception in December 2020, the staff has expanded to include four more social workers. Collectively, Carter’s Counselling Service offers a wealth of education and experience to its clients. Individually, the staff are all seasoned social workers with at least ten years of experience in various human services fields.
The vision of Carter’s Counselling is to help people realize their full potential by recognizing their own inherent strengths and skills. No one wants to live in crisis. We all want to be happy. Our ability to cope with life’s challenges can vary depending on what’s going on in our lives at any given time. Our experienced staff are here to help guide you through whatever challenges you’re facing, so you can get back on the path to balance and wellness.
