Counselling Services offers free, confidential counselling to support students to achieve success in their academic and personal goals. We offer both individual and group therapy for students. We assist students to address immediate concerns but also to acquire the self-confidence and skills necessary for professional success and individual development. We strive to provide a safe and supportive environment for students of all orientations and backgrounds.
Our services are short term in nature and the duration of counselling is determined on a case by case basis depending on need and resources available. Services are provided by our team of registered social workers, psychotherapists and therapy interns.
Counsellors work in several locations across campus. Embedded counsellors work within OVC, Residence, Engineering, and Science. Appointments may be booked with these counsellors through the main Counselling Services office x 53244.
We also provide consultation to University faculty, staff and parents regarding students of concern.
