As a welcoming and diverse community, the University of Guelph experiences a range of challenges. We seek to help students towards achieving academic goals through personal development, balanced mental health and community engagement. Students in crisis will be provided support and counselling.
Counselling Services provides:
- professional level short term individual and group counselling/therapy
- programming focused on identified needs of students to realize their potentials to benefit from the academic environment and experience
- consultative services to the university community (students, faculty, and staff) in order to make the environment as beneficial as possible to the intellectual, emotional, and physical development of students
- evaluation and/or research activities of services provided to determine their efficacy
- referrals off campus in Guelph if students prefer or require more intensive or long term counselling/therapy
Inclusivity and Accessibility
Counselling Services is committed to the promotion and affirmation of diversity in its broadest sense. The professional ethics and standards of the various mental health disciplines represented at Counselling Services place a high value on the dignity and worth of individuals regardless of their gender, ethnicity, race, sexual/affectional orientation, age, physical and mental abilities, religious beliefs, and socioeconomic background.
