"Good counselling means walking with troubled people through deep water, helping them to discover the strength they have and develop it so they can fly on their own again." - Calgary Counselling Centre's founder, Reverend Edgar Mullen, PhD, 1962

Through counselling and group programs, the centre helps individuals , families, couples, children, men and women resolve emotional and social problems. Through its ongoing research and education programs, Calgary Counselling Centre strives to meet the changing needs of our community.
