Counselling

University life is challenging. Counselling services are available to help students maximize their enjoyment of university life and learning. Counsellors work closely with the other Health and Wellness team members and the local community to provide support to students. Counsellors work with students to find the most appropriate resource for the student.

Our counsellors can help students with:

  • stress, anxiety, and depression
  • relationship issues and balancing school, work, family, and friends
  • eating or sleeping difficulties
  • suicide or self-harm concerns
  • difficulties with thinking, attention, and concentration
  • violence or safety concerns
  • substance misuse, internet overuse, gaming, and other addictive behaviours
  • sex or sexual identity issues
  • managing complex mental health issues
  • skill building for academic and personal success

Counselling visits are confidential and provided at no cost to UBC Okanagan students. Counsellors provide short-term counselling; if students require longer term counselling, counsellors will work with the students to find appropriate resources within the community.

Translated health materials are available. Counselling practicum and research experiences for graduate students may be available.
