Counselling Services is a centre devoted to personal development, performance and learning. The services offered by this department include personal (non-academic) counselling and the Performance Enhancement Program. Refer to the counselling services website for the many exciting related on-line workshops.

Professionally trained staff are available throughout the year for confidential, adult-to-adult consultation regarding personal concerns including adjustment and coping issues, interpersonal/relationship issues, identity issues, family of origin issues, and mental health concerns. Individual Performance consultation might include issues relating to Procrastination, Motivation, Goal-setting and Confidence. Group workshops and informal seminars are offered to enhance skills in such areas as interpersonal communication, stress management and performance enhancement in the areas of music, sports or academic exams.

Pamphlets, handouts and other self-help material relevant to personal development or academic performance are available in the Counselling Office or on the website listed above.
