Counselling Services

Our Expertise and Your Privacy 

We are here to provide accessible, evidence-based, and inclusive clinical services to our diverse student community. Mental health and well-being is an important component of student success. As such, we strive to support your adjustment through responsive, skills-based and proactive engagement.

Our clinicians are registered psychologists with extensive experience in treating a wide variety of 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 accessed counselling. Personal health information is not disclosed to University faculty or staff, parents, or other persons and agencies without your written permission. There are however a few ethical and legal limitations to confidentiality that the clinician will discuss with you during your first contact session.

Our video (below) provides information on what to expect from receiving counselling with us. Many of the questions you may have are answered in the video.

We follow a brief and change oriented model of treatment. The number of sessions you receive depends on your treatment plan. Although this number is not capped, we have found that, on average, functional outcomes are attained within 3 to 8 sessions.

Several other treatment options are available to you. You can find information on these options here.

Important Information

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

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.
