Personal Counselling

At times academic issues may get confused with personal problems (relationship issues, death in the family, etc.). We have a team of counsellors that just work with engineering students. You can find out more about them at Engineering Counselling.

To book an appointment with one of the counsellors, call 519-888-4096.
If you are out of the province, seek care where you are or contact EmpowerMe 1-833-628-5589.
