Clients may be offered appointments with Interns or Residents supervised by a member of our multidisciplinary professional team appropriate to the service the student has accessed.

With each appointment, we aim to provide a supportive atmosphere, quality care, and an innovative approach complemented by the diversity of lived experiences among our clinicians and clinicians-in-training.

Our mental health team provides support Monday-Friday. All appointments need to be booked in advance by calling 519-661-3030.

What to Expect at Your First Appointment

Western’s mental health team aims to provide students with effective, timely, safe, evidence-based, and confidential short-term supports through brief, change-oriented psychotherapy. Prior to attending their first appointment, students will be required to complete some preliminary paperwork.

During the first appointment, the counsellor will ask questions to understand students’ concerns, provide support, and develop a plan to address identified concerns. This initial appointment will last 50-60 minutes. Many students find that one appointment is all they need to get back on track, and others may benefit from a few follow-up appointments. Students will work collaboratively with the counsellor to determine which model best meets their needs. Students looking for long-term counselling will be directed to a range of supports that are available on campus, online, and in the community.
