Borrowing Library for Counselling Resources

University of Guelph Counselling Services hosts a borrowing library, free of charge, for common counselling books and resources for students that are accessing Counselling Services.  Students can sign out books such as Mind Over Mood, The Shyness and Social Anxiety Workbook, Quiet, The Feeling Good Handbook, The Five Love Languages, and many more.  Students may discuss with their counsellor resources that might be helpful. 


Counselling Services respects confidentiality at all times and is guided by the laws of the Province, the University's policy, and its own policy on confidentiality. Therefore we cannot share information about a student without the student's written permission.

Letters of Academic Support

As indicated in the University Calendar for Academic Consideration, "documentation" is required whenever psychological/emotional grounds are identified as the primary reason for academic difficulties.

Therapy Groups

Groups run for 1.5 hours weekly and vary in length from 3-10 weeks. Talk to a counsellor or physician from Health Services  about referral to a group.
