Students Counselling

Going to university is exciting. But the good times also come with many stressors and poor choices. Add to this the challenge of navigating through tons of homework, academic requirements, and dating, then it is fair to say that undergraduate students have a lot on their plate.

University life can result in undergraduate students taking less care of themselves and going through psychological and emotional struggles. Many students suffer from anxiety, depression, and low self-esteem with little access to support.

Universities that offer students’ counselling can hardly accommodate everyone who needs help due to the huge divide in the ratio between students and counselors.

So, what should a student like you have to do?

If you find yourself in extremely stressful circumstances, seek counselling. Remember, you have access to insurance benefits as a student.

Many students come up with reasons not to do so, which does not help them in the long run.

Don’t have time? Make time to speak to a counselor.

Can’t afford it? Contact your insurance company and ask your counsellor for a sliding scale rate.

Think you can handle it on your own? Think again.

Your mental well-being dictates your academic performance. There’s no reason in the world that can save you from the stressors that lead to anxiety or depression.

The good news is that students at University of Guelph and Conestoga college can see therapists without paying out of pocket. Students from U of G are covered for $500 per year for counselling.

Our intern therapists offer sliding scale rates for counselling. Please check the affordable counselling option.
