Who comes to see a counsellor?

Anyone who feels the need to talk to an objective professional about a personal situation.

What can I expect?

In general, students who come for personal counselling want to learn how to better adapt to university life, need support, or are looking for a confidential environment where they can freely discuss an issue or a problem.

Do I have to give my name?

When you make an appointment in person or over the phone, the receptionist will ask for your name and your telephone number.  At your first visit you will be asked to fill out a registration form. This information is confidential and is used for statistics gathering only.

Are counselling sessions confidential?

All sessions at Counselling, Career & Disability Services are confidential except in emergency situations where harm may come to you or others. What you decide to share with a counsellor remains confidential – unless you give permission to your counsellor to discuss your situation with someone else on your behalf.  The identity of anyone who uses the Centre is also considered confidential information. See our Privacy Policy.

Are the counsellors qualified professionals?

Yes. Whether your problem is personal, social, academic, career-related or disability, you will find counsellors with the qualifications and experience appropriate to a university setting.
