Program description

WoodGreen’s Walk-In Counselling service provides single-session counselling to address a wide range of concerns, such as anxiety, depression, anger management and difficulties with work, school or relationships. We work with clients to identify their most pressing issue and discuss strategies that can lead to positive change. Our counsellors are registered professionals (social workers and psychotherapists); WoodGreen staff, students and volunteers may also assist clients under supervision from a registered professional.
