A Catalyst for Connection.

Rising Tides is more than a counselling agency. It’s a place for sharing new ideas, coming together as a community and growing as people. We are driven to support individuals, but also groups and communities, to fulfill their fullest potential.

Rising Minds Book Club

Most of us have purchased self-help books with the intention of digging in and learning more about ourselves or others. Often, we get distracted by our busy lives and don’t quite finish the whole thing. Or we finish it and we are really excited about what we learned, but would love to share our thoughts with someone else who has read it. Our book club is for anyone who wants to read and discuss a wide range books. Join us on Facebook.
