Graduate Wellness Counselling

During the Fall 2020-2021 term, Graduate students can access counselling online.  The Health and Wellness Centre on the St. George Campus continues to offer brief counselling services either by telephone or video conferencing 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 Undergraduate and Graduate Students

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, online to help you develop coping skills to meet the demands of university, work, and personal life. 

Where: Register on the Career & Co-Curricular Learning Network web page (the links are provided below).  Once registered, you will be sent the link to join the workshop on BlackBoard Collaborate. 

When: Tuesdays, 12:00 pm – 1:30 PM

The 4 workshop series will be offered on the same day and time throughout the fall term.
