Counselling Supports and Services

University life can be challenging for many students and there may be a time when you feel overwhelmed and need support.

At the Health & Wellness Centre, we have trained counselling staff available Monday to Friday to assist you. Your first visit will usually be a 45-minute same day appointment in order to get a sense of what is going on and to better understand your strengths and needs. During this appointment, counselling staff will collaboratively create a plan with you. This plan may include a follow-up counselling appointment, a referral to group therapy, a referral to other departments on campus, and information about programs in the community. The Health & Wellness Centre Counselling staff may also direct you to helpful online self-help tools, books, apps and websites. 

Please call us 416-287-7065 or email health-services@utsc.utoronto.ca to book a same day appointment.

To note: Given that the Health & Wellness Centre is a training facility for Masters and PhD counselling/social work/clinical psychology students, there may be times when a practicum student may observe, participate or lead your counselling session.  This will be done only with your consent.  All practicum students are trained and supervised to ensure the provision of excellent care.
