Walk-in One Session Counselling Clinic

Fast and easy access to counselling services! No appointment or referral needed for a one-time counselling session.

Why come to us?

If you need someone to talk to about life’s challenges, come in to speak with a trained professional counsellor. We can help you with issues such as:

  • Parenting, family and marital conflict
  • Separation, divorce and grief
  • Job loss and job-related stress
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Trauma and panic attacks
  • Addictions: alcohol, drugs, medication and gambling
  • Anger and difficult interpersonal relationships
  • Gender identity and gender expression
  • Sexual assault
  • Other life challenges

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.
