Professional and confidential counselling is provided free of charge in a private setting. Counsellors work sensitively and respectfully with you to assist you to identify and resolve your problems/concerns. When necessary, our counsellors will refer you to appropriate services in the community. Counselling concerns may include:

  • stress management
  • substance abuse
  • dealing with loss/death
  • depression/anxiety
  • eating disorders
  • anger management
  • assault/abuse
  • relationship difficulties
  • school failure/underachievement
  • sexuality
  • suicide risk

What can I expect from counselling?

The decision to begin counselling is an important one. People have reported both a greater level of comfort and more favourable results when they understand what to expect from the counselling process. At our counselling office, you can expect:

  • to meet one-on-one in a private setting with a professionally trained personal counsellor
  • the content of your sessions to be held in confidence
  • support and encouragement
  • to have follow-up appointments as required that fit your class schedule
  • to be informed of other resources that might be helpful to you

How can I get the most from my counselling sessions?

In order to benefit fully from counselling, the following recommendations are offered:

  • attend scheduled sessions
  • be specific about the concerns that led to your decision to seek counselling
  • establish with your counsellor desired goals and outcomes to be achieved in counselling
  • discuss your progress with your counsellor as you go along, and modify your goals if necessary
  • participate actively and be as open and honest as possible
  • tell your counsellor if you don't think you're being helped

Successful counselling is a joint process requiring your motivation and active involvement. The more actively involved you are, the more effective counselling will be for you.
