What is Counselling Services?
as Student Development Counsellors is to encourage you to become an active
participant in the maintenance of your own well-being, rather than to provide long-term treatment for mental illness. Student Development
Counselling is a short-term, solution focused service, which provides guidance
for personal concerns (such as stress, relationship problems, adjustment to
university, sexuality, body image, life goals, grief, self-esteem) and helps
students develop coping skills and strategies for self-care.
Although we are here to help any student as far as possible, please note that Student Development Counsellors are not psychologists, nor are we specialists who are trained in specific types of therapy. If you have a specific mental health diagnosis which requires long term or specialized therapy, you will find more suitable care options in the surrounding community. If you do attend counselling on campus and your concerns are deemed to be outside of the
Student Development Counselling scope of practice, we will help you find an alternative resource that can serve you better. Click here to find out more about these resources.
How do I make an appointment? If you are seeking counselling for personal issues, please call 364-2163, or drop by the Wellness Centre (8:30 a.m.-noon, and 1 p.m.-4:30 p.m.) to make an appointment.
In compliance with our standards of practice, and to ensure that everyone who requests counselling is assisted in the shortest time possible, we enforce the following policy:
Please keep in mind that punctuality is important, so try to arrange to be on time for your appointment(s). If you are more than 15 minutes late to an appointment, it will be cancelled. When possible, we request that you cancel any appointment(s) at least 24 hours in advance. Students who continue to miss their appointments may be placed on a waiting list until services become more available. Sincerely,
Catherine Fawcett, MSW & Laura Horsman, MSW
