How do we help our clients?
We offer a walk-in individual single-session therapy with a psychotherapist.
Through the single-session approach, we help you work with your own strengths to plan a way to deal with your concern. In many cases, a single session is enough for you to take a step in the direction where you want to move. At the end of the session, if you and the therapist feel that you need a longer-term therapy, we can refer you to one of our programs.
Note: This walk-in clinic does not provide medication reviews or counselling with a psychiatrist.
Who do we serve?
- People aged 12 or over.
- A counsellor from the Youth Hub is available to help teenagers.
- We also accept Québec clients.
