Counselling Services

University of Guelph Counselling Services - Here to Help

To keep staff and students safe during social distancing, Counselling Services offers online video and phone appointments. Let us know if you are unable to do an online video or phone session and an in-person session can be arranged.

We improve life by supporting students through personal challenges. We also support staff and faculty to respond to student concerns. We offer several resources, including both individual and group counselling to support students as they work through personal challenges that affect their ability to succeed at school and in other areas of their lives.  Counselling Services has no fee required at time of service.

If you are seeking personal support, please review these mental health resources, learn more about counselling services or book an appointment.
