Free Professional Counselling
MARCH 13, 2020 UPDATE: Please note that in response to the evolving pandemic situation with COVID-19 we are suspending walk-in counselling services until further notice. If you would like to see a counsellor, please call our crisis line (403-266-4357) or submit an intake form below. If you have an appointment scheduled and you are not feeling well, please call your counsellor to reschedule or call reception if you are unsure of who your counsellor is.
“I felt alone, over-whelmed, ashamed and afraid. I picked up the phone and called. Your compassion, kindness and gentle insight helped me access a counsellor. It was then I started to re-claim my life. Thank you. You saved my life.” – Sandra Buekert, Caller
Not all problems can be solved over the phone. In fact, a call is often just the first step in overcoming a crisis. To help with more complex issues, our professional crisis counsellors provide free counselling for individuals, couples and families at Distress Centre.
We have both evening and emergency appointments available.
Please note that counselling is not a 24 hour service. Walk-in appointments are available weekdays from 1:00pm – 4:00pm, or you can submit an intake to book an appointment.
Counsellors at Distress Centre are all Registered Social Workers with the Alberta College of Social Workers.
To get started, call our crisis line at 403-266-HELP (4357) and ask for an intake to counselling or use the online intake form via the button below.
