When a Single-Session is all you Need

The Counselling Group is an Ottawa-based clinic offering a variety of counselling and support services. We offer appointment-based multi-session counselling, however, we recognize that there may be times when access to immediate, single-session support is all you need to face a specific challenge. To that end, The Counselling Group is pleased to support The Walk-In Counselling Clinic, a program led by JFS Ottawa in collaboration with other family service agencies.

The Walk-In Counselling Clinic’s mandate is to provide a safe and positive space from which individuals, couples, and families can access trained and qualified Therapists without an appointment. Clinics are held daily (including weekends and evening) at a variety of locations in and around the Ottawa so that Ottawa residents will have access to the support they need in times of distress. The Walk-In Counselling Clinic will soon grow to add 3 additional sites in the Ottawa-area, offering services in a variety of languages. A full list of hours and locations is available at (new clinic sites will be added soon).

The focus is on single-session solutions that are intended to help clients identify their immediate needs. All clients are seen by a qualified Therapist trained to provide guidance and support towards resolution and/or change. When necessary, The Walk-In Counselling Clinic Therapists can make a recommendation for longer-term counselling support.
