We know that you may be feeling anxious about the events in our city and the world, uncertain about your health, finances and family, among many other concerns, and want you to know that we are still here for you.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, ALL counselling sessions at Momentum Walk-in Counselling will be provided using an online or telephone platform. All groups have been temporarily cancelled.

Please keep an eye on our website to confirm when our groups will resume.

We are doing this as a preventative measure to work toward keeping the most vulnerable people safe.

To have an online counselling session, you need an internet connection and a room to yourself. Please call our office at 780-757-0900 or email to request an appointment, and we will give you further instructions on the process.

This group focuses on teaching skills and techniques that participants can utilize to begin making positive changes in their lives.

Participants can expect an integrative therapeutic approach, borrowing techniques from CBT and positive psychology,

to help understand and change how they experience Anxiety and Depression.

If you are ready to begin to take action and make changes in your life, this group is intended for you.

Each week, a new topic will be introduced that builds off of the previous weeks.

The objectives of each session are to provide information and insight into the techniques and skill introduced; including, building awareness, coping/self-care and maintaining changes.

Overall, the goal of the group is to empower you to develop an informed action plan and begin to change your relationship with Anxiety and Depression.
