Welcome to Counselling Services

University can be a challenging environment. Meeting with an experienced and friendly counsellor can help you to assess your questions and concerns, set goals and develop strategeies and skills to manage stress or any issues you may be dealing with.  

We can help work to develop your campus resources and connections during your time at Waterloo.

Not only personal counselling but personal wellness workshops, outreach and mental health education initiatives and crisis management.  

Continuing education for staff and faculty development as well as participation in many faculties and services across campus is another contribution to the UW community.

We serve the entire University of Waterloo community while working with our community partners and university counterparts....  and much more!

We offer short term, confidential counselling in many areas of personal wellbeing and mental health including such issues as:  

  • wellness & life management
  • new life experiences
  • resource & referral 
  • crisis management
  • depression
  • anxiety
  • stress management
  • grief
  • sexuality
  • relationship issues
  • substance use 
  • new life experience
  • family
  • goal setting
  • self development
  • and much, much more

We look forward to working with you!
