Indigenous Counselling

Indigenous counsellors

Our counsellors for Indigenous students offer a safe and caring space that honours Indigenous knowledge, experience and ways of healing. They address mental health concerns using a balance of Indigenous perspectives with appropriate and respectful mainstream approaches.

Our counsellors respect the diverse cultural backgrounds and levels of knowledge of all Indigenous students. Their counselling approaches can address the intergenerational effects of colonial traumas and the challenges of being a post-secondary student. The counsellors for Indigenous students are Roger John and Marcey Louie.

How to book an Indigenous Counselling appointment

Self-identified Indigenous students can call the Student Wellness Centre at 250-721-8563 or come in person to request an indigenous counselling appointment. Students can also request to directly book a counselling appointment with Roger or Marcey, or contact them directly to book. Students can also seek referral from the staff at IACE.
