Do you ever find yourself facing a new opportunity or ongoing challenge that you’d really like some advice on? Do you want to change your current situation but are not quite sure what your next steps should be? If so, drop-in single-session counselling may be right for you.
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.
Often, one drop-in session may be enough to help you think more clearly and work through your own solution when you are stuck.
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.
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.
