Edmonton Counselling Services

No matter what you’re going through, The Family Centre is here for you.

Family Counselling Edmonton

Counselling offers a safe and confidential space where you can explore your thoughts, feelings, and concerns with a trained and compassionate professional.

Our Edmonton counsellors tailor our approach to your unique needs, ensuring that you receive personalized care.

Are you facing life's challenges, feeling overwhelmed, or struggling to find clarity and peace of mind? Our counselling services are here to provide the guidance and support you need to navigate life's journey.

Our mental health therapists are experienced in a broad range of issues. We can help you understand your situation better and figure out ways to move successfully through it.

A single session with one of our mental health therapists may be enough to help you think more clearly and work through your own solution when you feel stuck.

Your well-being matters, and taking the first step towards a healthier, happier life is a significant achievement. Contact us today or give us a call at 780-900-6423 to schedule an appointment or learn more about our counselling services. Let us help you find the clarity, balance, and peace you deserve.

Your first session is:

  • Free
  • Available virtually, over the phone, or in person
  • 50 minutes long

You will fill out your intake forms ahead of time. That means we can start addressing your concerns right away at your first session. Often just one session with a mental health therapist can help you to think more clearly. 

We are here to support you as you navigate:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Stress
  • Relationship challenges, including separation and divorce
  • Grief and loss
  • Parenting challenges and conflict
  • Child and adolescent development and behaviour
  • Domestic abuse prevention
