What is counselling?

Counselling is the chance to speak to someone about any struggles or concerns you may be experiencing. Counselling is not about getting advice, but rather the chance to talk to someone who will listen without judgement, and who will work collaboratively with you on your goals. It’s a free and confidential service. For students who need more complex or long-term help, the counsellor will work to connect you to appropriate community supports

What can I expect coming in for counselling?

The first step is to book an appointment, by filling out the web form. 

What kind of issues can the Residence Counsellor help with?

The Residence Counsellor helps students who face a variety of issues. Some of these include: anxiety, stress, depression, relationship problems, body image, self-esteem, substance abuse, coming out, family conflict, and more. Some students worry that their problems might not be "big enough” to seek out counselling for, but everyone can use someone to talk to! There is no such thing as too small (or too big) of a concern to talk to the counsellor about. Everyone is welcome.
 

What impact will seeing the Residence Counsellor have on me?

It depends on your individual situation and goals, but other students who saw the Residence Counsellor reported feeling happier, less stressed, more connected to the residence and campus community, and more confident in their ability to handle their stresses.
