We invite you to browse the description of our services and review the many resources we created to support your success. We know university can be an exciting, yet stressful time for students. Indeed, for many it is not all smooth sailing. Homesickness, feeling anxious, and relationship troubles are a few examples that can lead us to feel down and discouraged. It could be that you need more than your family’s advice to evaluate your career and education interests. Unanticipated troubles, such as a family illness, may significantly interfere with school.
When experiences like these negatively impact of your ability to be academically successful and live well, you will want to consider additional help. Sometimes you may just need support from counsellors to explore your options, connect with resources, and develop a perspective that will help you to cope.Student Counselling is here for you so you can continue to enjoy your activities, live well, and have a great Mount Royal University experience.
