Counselling Services

Our Expertise and Your Privacy 

We are here to provide accessible, evidence-based, and inclusive mental health services to our diverse student community. Mental health is an important component of student success. As such, we strive to enhance the mental health and well-being of our students through responsive, engaging, and preventative services.

Our clinicians are registered psychologists with extensive experience in treating a wide variety of mental health concerns. Services are provided in accordance with the principles of the Canadian Code of Ethics for Psychologists.

Information shared in counselling is confidential, including the fact that you have come for counselling. Personal health information is not disclosed to University faculty or staff, parents, or other persons and agencies without your written permission. There are a few ethical and legal limitations to confidentiality that the clinician will discuss with you during your first meeting.

Important Information

Although our in-person service is suspended due to COVID-19, we are still here for you!

Counselling is currently available in live stream format. Please contact us through our Online Contact Us Form.

We review and respond to our Counselling Services e-mail on a daily basis.

If you or someone you know requires support for an urgent situation, please contact the 24/7 resources.

Providing Assistance to Students

Faculty and staff encountering students who appear to be struggling may wish to provide direct support and where appropriate, make referrals to other on-campus services. Information about how to assist students in distress can be found in the Student Affairs section of UR Source, under Counselling Services. This includes a Care Report which will help you gain support for both yourself and the student.
