What to Expect

The Walk-In Counselling Clinic offers confidential, single-session counselling services on a first come, first served basis. When clients arrive at one of our clinic locations, we aim to have them seen as quickly as possible.

Counselling sessions are approximately 1.5 hours in length. Though clients are sometimes referred to other services, in many cases a single concentrated visit is all that is required.

The focus of the session is determined by each client’s unique needs. Whether coping with a stressful situation, enquiring about services, or looking for an understanding and non-judgmental ear, our counsellors are trained to help clients address what is most important to them.

Our experienced counsellors help clients identify issues, recognize and build on their own strengths and abilities, and where appropriate help them develop strategies to address their concerns.
