Counselling for Students

Our time as students can be filled with various emotions. We can feel excitement as we begin a new adventure, or continue toward a goal that we have been working diligently to accomplish. We can feel a bit nervous about how we will finish all the assignments that we have before us, or anxious about what we will do when school ends and what our future will look like. Family, friends and other aspects of the world around us can also be either a barrier to our success at times, or potential resources we can use to encourage our growth.

These emotions can exist at various times, or there can be moments when it seems so many emotions are dominating and we do not really know what to do with them all. We might be excited but fearful at the same time, or happy about moving forward while we are sad about leaving things behind. We understand that being a student is not always easy, not only within classrooms but navigating through social relationships and family interactions. We are here to be a resource to you during this time, and are thrilled to be able to offer student rates that help to take the burden of finances away from pursuing counselling.

Student Fees:

Being a student can often times require living on a budget. We do not want a budget to prevent students from being able to access the mental health resources that they need. Therefore we offer affordable therapy for students: 

Student Therapy Fee: $20 for a 50 minute session.

If you are a student (High school, College, University) you are able to access the Student Therapy fee of $20 if you meet with one of our Professional Practicum Graduate Therapist. 

Here is a list of the therapists that meet this criteria:

Student Insurance Options:

Depending on the University or College you attend, your school may provide you with an extended health benefits. Often times these extended health benefits are bundled in with your tuition payments, and some students are not even aware of the resources they have. We have listed below the University and Colleges in the area, and if we know of a health program associated with the full time students at that school, we have included information and links to find out more ways you can access these resources.
