Welcome to Momentum Walk-In Counselling

Mental Health Counselling
Momentum is a mental health counselling agency, supporting clients who would otherwise be unable to access counselling because of long wait lists or financial barriers. We are a non profit organization that is staffed by a team of volunteers, Registered Health Professionals who collaborate to provide clients with Solution Focused Therapy.
Currently, we offer virtual and in-person sessions with same-day service. We specialize in providing Solution Focused, Single Session Therapy to clients who are in distress or do not know where else to turn.
Why Choose Momentum?
Momentum was recently voted #2 Best Mental Health Clinic in Edmonton by Best In Edmonton! We are humbled to receive this honour from our clients and community.
Check out our review here!
Many of our dedicated volunteer Mental Health Professionals have been with us since our inception in 2012! Our Clinical Supervision model ensures you benefit from not only your counsellors expertise and training, but also the experience and viewpoints of our Team Leads and Clinical Supervisors. Our model is unique and incredibly valuable.
We are a not for profit, registered charity. Our team members are passionate advocates for mental health and wellness. They give of their time and talents not for personal gain, but to give back to their community.
We believe that mental health is not a luxury reserved for those with financial means or extended health benefits but a RIGHT. We all deserve to be mentally and emotionally well, regardless of our current circumstances. At Momentum, our mission is to ensure equitable access to mental health support.
