Drop-In Single Session Counselling

Drop-In Single Session Counselling offers NO-COST single-session counselling to individuals, couples and families when they need it most. This is a drop-in service with multiple locations throughout Edmonton with flexible days and times. CMHA Edmonton is a proud partner of this essential service. For additional information please visit

What is Offered?

Our service is provided by intern therapists who are completing their Masters or PhD in therapy or other counselling areas. In addition to the extensive individual and group supervision they receive, we also use a team approach so you can benefit from many perspectives to help you make the change you desire.

We will help you create a plan to solve the most important issue you wish to address in our single-session therapy. Referral to other community services is provided if required.

While we don’t pre-book appointments, if you need service in the future, you are welcome to return for additional counselling sessions.

Where is it?

We have multiple locations throughout Edmonton. Information is subject to change. For the most current information, call 211 or visit
