Free Professional Counselling
COVID-19 UPDATE: In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, counselling services are currently available by phone and video.
“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
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.
Counsellors are all regulated professionals with the Alberta College of Social Workers or the College of Alberta Psychologists
