In keeping with York University’s provisions for shifting all but required services off-campus, as well as Health Canada’s recommendations regarding social distancing, personal counselling services are being provided remotely through a confidential telephone/video counselling platform. Our regular hours of operation remain the same.
How to Access Services
Should you be interested in speaking with a counsellor for support, please call 416-736-5297. If the line is busy, please wait for a few minutes and try again. Our hours of operation can be found in the Contact Us section at the bottom of the page.
All counsellors at Accessibility, Well-Being & Counselling are registered clinicians who have experience working with a diverse student population. With that said, AWC recognizes that students may desire to meet with a counsellor with whom they share the same or similar identity/ background.
Students are welcome to express their preference to meet with counsellors of a particular identity (e.g. male, female, Black-identifying, LGBTQ+-identifying, etc.). Please alert reception to your preference at the time of booking. We will do our best to ensure that these preferences are met in a timely manner.
