Counselling Services is a centre devoted to student learning, performance and personal development. The services offered by this department include personal (non-academic) counselling and the Study Skills Program.

Professionally trained staff are available throughout the year for confidential, adult-to-adult consultation regarding any personal concerns that threaten classroom concentration or emotional equilibrium. Concerns about relationships can be discussed individually or jointly with a partner. Group workshops and informal seminars are offered to enhance skills in such areas as interpersonal communication, stress management and performance in music, sports or academic exams.

The Study Skills Program offers informal instructional workshops in motivation and time management, textbook learning and note taking, concentration and memory, essay and thesis management and exam preparation. Individual appointments with a learning consultant or learning assistant are also available to deal with any specific study concerns.

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.
