Welcome to Learning Skills Services

Learning Skills LogoAs part of the Student Experience portfolio, Learning Skills Services offers confidential individual counselling appointments to all students at Western. Counsellors help students cope with the demands of post-secondary learning, helping to identify strengths and develop new skills and strategies for success.  Counsellors also work with students to alleviate academic stress and anxiety, and to develop positive motivation and confidence toward learning.  This service is available for successful students wanting to maintain their already strong skills and those having academic difficulties.
