Sometimes a fresh perspective or someone to listen is just what you need to move forward. Our therapists are trained listeners who can offer guidance to transform your life by helping you think about things differently, focus on your personal strengths and goals, and connect with other supports in your community.
Drop-in counselling refers to a single 50-minute session. We do not go into a lot of background details but you stay focused on a current issue and specific goal for the session.
You will leave the session with a lot of tools and community resources. Most importantly, you can expect to have your feelings validated and come out with hope that things will get better.
Often, just one session may be enough to help you think more clearly and work through your own solution when you are feeling stuck. Our mental health therapists can help you understand your situation better and figure out ways to move successfully through it.
There is NO cost to you. This service is funded by The City of Edmonton – Family and Community Support Services and United Way of the Capital Region.
Our drop-in counselling is provided by intern therapists who are completing their Masters or PhD in therapy or other counselling areas. They receive extensive individual and group supervision, and we also use a team approach with multiple viewpoints to help you make the change you desire.
If you return for another drop-in appointment you may not get the same therapist, which allows you to benefit from different styles and perspectives. For a deeper, ongoing relationship with a therapist, please see our goal-oriented counselling.
