Free Professional Counselling

Face-to-face support.

Not all problems can be solved over the phone. In fact, a call is often just the first step in overcoming 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.

Counsellors at Distress Centre are all Registered Social Workers with the Alberta College of Social Workers.

To get started, call our crisis line 403-266-HELP (4357) and ask for an intake to counselling or use the online intake form via the button below.

Please note that our offices are located in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
We do not provide counselling services outside of the Province of Alberta.
