Our counsellors provide short-term supportive counselling for a range of issues. For some students, there are disability issues that impact the ability to engage within an academic setting. Identifying the appropriate academic accommodations for a student with a disability in the postsecondary environment is an important part of the service we provide. Requirements for long-term support is often referred to appropriate specialized resources in the community. We do not provide counselling for those who seek services for court-ordered or forensically-oriented treatment.
