The Counselling Program provides individual, family and couple counselling for a broad range of symptoms and situations. The counselling department’s goals are to assist clients with recovery from emotional distress, to support the development of fulfilling interpersonal relationships and social roles, and to facilitate improvements in the social and living conditions that effect a client’s health and well-being.

Counselling services are available to anyone who has a physician at the Regina Community Clinic and is over the age of 16. Generally, clients are seen on a first come, first serve basis, unless their physician has identified their referral as urgent.

There is often a waiting list for counselling services. Clients are encouraged to use their EAP (Employee Assistance Program) while waiting to access our services. Should clients circumstances worsen, they should contact their physician in order for their referral status to be reassessed.

Counselling services are primarily delivered as individual therapy. On occasion, group programs are offered.
