Wellness Advising appointment
Available to students in British Columbia, virtually as well as in-person, these 15- to 20-minute appointments with Wellness Advisors who are registered clinical counsellors focus on assessment and wellness planning that connects you to the level of support that best meets your needs. This could include self-directed resources, workshops, life coaching, group therapy, brief counselling, or medical care. See booking information below.
Group counselling programs
Group counselling is as effective as individual therapy for concerns such as stress, anxiety, depression, and more. It can also benefit you in different ways such as being connected with other students who are going through a similar experience. See available online group programs to join.
Indigenous students support
We value and respectfully recognize Indigenous history, culture, traditional values, stories, and healing practices that support wellbeing alongside the use of western therapies.
If you’re an Indigenous student within British Columbia, and you would like to self-identify as Indigenous, we can offer you more support options, like arranging for a virtual appointment with an Indigenous counsellor.
Indigenous self-identification is not used for any purpose other than to support you better.
