Covid 19 update October 26, 2020

As of October 26, 2020, the City of Grande Prairie has activated a temporary mandatory face covering bylaw. This requires all Grande Prairie residents, including our clients and staff, to wear masks in all indoor public areas until covid-19 infection numbers for the county and city fall below 100 for 14 consecutive days. 

As a result, anyone entering the Windsor Court building and Burden Bearers office will be required to wear a mask until further notice. To see the details and exemptions of this bylaw, please visit

We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. If you are not comfortable wearing a mask for in person appointments, please consider talking to your counsellor over the phone or via video. 

Note that we may have some counsellors who choose not to do in person appointments at this time. 

We will let you know if your counsellor falls into this category when you book.

Please phone our office at 780-539-5225 if you have any questions. We will keep you informed and updated of any changes and when the bylaw is repealed.

Due to Coronavirus

Burden Bearers Counselling Centre is still open to the public. We are now open for face-to-face counselling but also do counselling via phone or video conferencing. People with compromised immune systems or flu-like symptoms can only receive counselling via phone or video conferencing. Our office is taking all the necessary sanitary measures to protect our clients.

If this is the first time you've looked into counselling we want you to know that choosing to get help is often half the victory. Choosing to get counselling can be a difficult decision, however it can mean finding your way through some of life's toughest battles. 


It is our hope that Burden Bearers will be instrumental in taking your stumbling blocks and assisting you to turn them into stepping stones. Carl Jung said, "The stone symbolized something permanent that can never be lost or dissolved, something eternal that men have compared to the mystical experience of God within one's soul."  

Burden Bearers is a not for profit counselling group dedicated to enhancing the emotional, physical, relational, historical, and spiritual well being of all who come for counsel.
