Counseling Services

While all people are naturally endowed with the strength to manage their own problems, there are some times when life's circumstances can make you feel that things are getting a little out of control. These are the times when help from a professional can be useful.

Counseling is about empowering you to find the right answer within yourself. You will be offered a safe, non-judgmental space where you can talk about issues that impact your ability to study and be effective as a student. All topics and information discussed with the counselor remain completely confidential.


You can get help with a range of issues such as:

  • Adjusting to life as a university student
  • Balancing family responsibilities and academic studies
  • Academic challenges (e.g. managing work load, insufficient study skills)
  • Managing stress
  • Interpersonal difficulties and conflicts
  • Making important life decisions
  • Feelings of sadness, anger, or fear
  • Life-threatening illness or death of a loved one
  • Dealing with the death or illness of patients in the clinical practice
