Did you know that counselling services are offered to community through Counselling Psychology and School and Child Clinical Psychology Programs at the University of Alberta?
 
Clinical Services provides lower-cost psychological services to the community, while giving graduate students valuable practical experience as they train for their professional careers. 
 
The Clinic (located on the University of Alberta main campus in the Education Centre North 1-135) is ramping up to provide counselling and assessment services to people in the community this fall and winter. The services in the clinic are provided by students at the Masters and PhD level as part of their course work. All students work under the supervision of registered psychologists or reading specialists and faculty members. They strive to advance the highest standards of training and research for their students. Their Doctoral Programme in Counselling Psychology is accredited by the Canadian Psychological Association.
 
The Clinic offers these services every year and usually has openings starting in September for counselling services and for adult assessment. There is a long wait list for child assessments at the moment. The Resilience Builder program for Anxiety in children will run this year and referrals are accepted until mid December. 

The fees are nominal and can be waived or reduced for low income families.
