Counselling Services

What is counselling?

Bilingual and confidential short-term counselling services by skilled and qualified counsellors are available on campus. Counsellors discuss personal issues and mental health concerns that may be interfering with your success as a student. We offer a range of services to promote effective learning, growth and personal development.

 

What to expect during your first visit:

Students coming for their first visit will be seen for a brief 30-to-45 minute intake-appointment with a counsellor who will:

  • Provide information about what to expect from the counselling process
  • Discuss the student’s issues and concerns
  • Develop a plan for treatment. This may include referral to services either on-or-off campus that best meets the student’s needs.
