Personal Counselling

It can often be helpful to talk to others about issues you are facing.  If an impartial and supportive listener is what your need, the Learner Equity & Wellness Office can help.  If you would like to talk with one of our counselling staff and faculty, please contact our office to book a confidential appointment (LEW contact)
