Walk-In / Talk-in

Children’s Centre Thunder Bay, in partnership with Thunder Bay Counselling, offers single-session counselling services. This service is available to children, youth, and adults of all ages, as well as to couples, parents, and families. No appointment is necessary during walk-in hours. Clients speak with professional counsellors on a first-come, first-served basis, with no fees for service.

Some of the issues that can be discussed include, but are not limited to abuse, budgeting and debt management, depression and anxiety, family conflict, relationship issues, school issues, separation and divorce, sexual abuse or assault, stress, substance use, and bereavement issues.

In partnership with Thunder Bay Counselling, our Walk-in Counselling Clinic is available on Wednesdays, between 12:00 pm and 6:30 pm. Call (807) 700-0090 to access phone, video or in-person sessions. Talk-in Counselling Flyer - English (.PDF)
