Welcome to Learning Development & Success

Learning Skills LogoAs part of the Student Experience portfolio, Learning Development and Success 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.

Was your last academic year tough? Want to do better but don't know where to start? Learn2Thrive is an initiative aimed to help students thrive, academically and personally. Join us for our holistic 10-week program and learn how to thrive.
