Sometimes, you need a little help and encouragement to grow.

Counselling services are available to all registered UDST students. We are here to assist students in achieving their academic and personal goals. We offer individual counselling sessions in a private, supportive and confidential environment. These services are voluntary and free of charge. We look forward to meeting you!


Sometimes, personal issues affect students' academic success and everyday life. Counsellors work collaboratively with students to help them resolve their problems and learn new life skills. Counsellors help students explore options, identify goals and develop plans related to personal, family, financial, and/or relationship concerns.

Wellness Programming

Counsellors offer a variety of workshops and awareness campaigns to promote overall student wellness that extends beyond the classroom. There are regular activities on campus to address stress management, mental health, physical wellbeing and cultural respect.
