Counselling

University can be stressful and it’s easy to find yourself feeling overwhelmed. If you're lonely, worried about the future or struggling with mental health issues, Counselling, at the Student Wellness Centre, can help. We offer free professional, confidential and inclusive support to UVic students.

Appointments

We offer two types of appointments:

Same-day appointments

Same-day appointments are first-come, first-served. There are a limited number of sessions available each day, so we recommend arriving early.

Pre-booked appointments

Pre-book a future session with a counsellor. You can book by coming to our front counter in person or by calling us at 250-721-8563.

Returning clients: If you’ve already met with a counsellor and would like to continue working with them, you can contact them directly to schedule a session.

Groups & workshops

We offer a wide variety of groups and workshops that provide practical advice, support and discussion. Topics include managing anxiety and depression, career exploration, grief and person growth. Check out the current groups and workshops being offered.
