Graduate students can access counselling services at the School of Graduate Studies, 63 St. George Street. Two full-time Wellness Counsellors from the Health and Wellness Centre on St. George Campus offer brief counselling services tailored to the challenges presented by graduate-level university life. The focus of counselling is on identifying strengths, acquiring resiliency, and building coping skills.

Graduate Wellness Workshops

Better Coping Workshops for Graduate Students: Series 2019-20

Do you have trouble coping with everyday situations? Do you…

  • worry constantly about worst-case scenarios?
  • blame or criticize yourself, even when things are going well?
  • feel like your emotions are overwhelming and difficult to tolerate?
  • avoid situations or activities because they make you nervous or because you think you’ll fail?
  • push yourself to do things perfectly, but still feel like a failure?

If any of these apply to you, we can help. We’re offering a series of free workshops, to help you develop coping skills to meet the demands of university, work, and personal life. 

Where: The School of Graduate Studies, 65 St. George Street, Room 201
When: Wednesdays, 10:30 am – 12:00 pm *Winter term dates TBA*

The Better Coping Skills Workshops have finished for the term. Winter workshops will be posted here shortly!
