AdultS & Family Counselling
The decision to enter counselling is a personal one. Counselling offers a place to explore what is currently happening in your life, learn more about yourself, identify past and current successes in dealing with life's challenges, and assist you in identifying and utilizing new knowledge and skills.
The counsellor will work with you, your partner, and your family to identify challenges and concerns, strengths and resources, and your counselling goals.
Families, couples and individuals come to counselling for a variety of reasons. These may include such issues as:

Calgary Family Services is committed to providing easy access to counselling. We have counsellors located in numerous locations throughout the city. The Intake Coordinator will discuss with you the various locations, and work with you to choose the best location. All of our locations are wheelchair accessible.
To initiate the counselling process, call the Intake Coordinator at 403.205.5244.
If you are in crisis and need immediate assistance, please call the Distress Center at 403.266.4357.
Fees for counselling are based on a sliding fee scale, according to the client's ability to pay. Fees will be established during the initial telephone call with the intake coordinator, at which time you will be asked your annual income. However, fee changes can be discussed if the established fee is not manageable or if family circumstances change.
Fees are payable each session by cash, cheque, Visa or MasterCard. If you meet with your counsellor at our downtown office, you will also be able to pay with Debit.
