Counselling Services

Personal, emotional and academic problems are a normal part of student life.  Professionally trained staff are available to assist students in coping with problem areas in their life that interfere with maximizing their academic and social potential.  One of the most helpful ways of dealing with problematic situations and feelings is to talk them through with an experienced counsellor.

Confidentiality: Confidentiality is the cornerstone of the counselling relationship. All communication between you and your counsellor will be held in confidence and will not (except under special circumstances*) be disclosed to anyone outside of the Counselling Services department unless you give written authorization to release the information.

*Please see our confidentiality form for more information: Confidentiality Form.pdf
