We all experience periods of stress, sadness, grief and conflict at some point in our lives. So if you are going through something maybe it is time to seek professional support regarding the issue or problem at hand.
• Your feeling alone/disconnected due to COVID-19
• Feeling anxious, sad, angry or hopelessness
• Something traumatic has happened
• Your using substances to cope with issues in your life
• Friends, Family & Instructors are concerned
The stigma associated with seeking counselling supports for yourself is that it may be a sign of “weakness” when it is instead; a sign of your inner strength. It is normal and healthy to seek help when you are in emotional distress. Remember change is possible and that when someone seeks out counselling they are helping to reduce the stigma associated with counselling and mental health supports.

You can access “short-term” counselling and we work in partnership with community resources where we can provide supports with an external referral. The student counsellor will work with you to asses your needs or preferences and we will let you know if we can meet them. If we cannot meet them, we can refer you to other professionals.
Confidentiality in Professional Practice: The Code of Ethics (2005). CASW Code of Ethics
Only when there is foreseeable harm to the client, others or by court order will the counsellor break confidentiality. Other than those reasons, there is a general expectation that all information is confidential.
Student counselling services are free to The Pas & Thompson Campus students only.
That depends on the plan you and the student counsellor make and the availability of the counsellor and student.
There is no current wait list however; the best way to see the student counsellor is to book an appointment with reception. The counsellor may offer you a follow-up appointment depending on their schedule and your counselling needs.
Please let us know in advance or as soon as possible if you miss an appointment. If you miss a counselling appointment, it is up to you to contact the front desk to reschedule. If you miss a counselling appointment and your counsellor has not heard from you, they will call or email you to reschedule. If you miss several appointments without notice, your counsellor will end counselling.
Counselling sessions are usually about one hour long and pending the outcome of the session. Another appointment may be scheduled; depending on the student's counselling needs and availability.
