Personal Counselling Services

Book an appointment - Summer 2021

Due to limited availabilities during the summer months, the YukonU counselling centre is not taking new clients. If you are an existing client, email Bridget to schedule an appointment at bhouston@yukonu.ca. Please note that Melissa won't be meeting with students during the summer until August 16th, 2021. 

Am I an existing client? Yes - if you've had counselling session(s) with Bridget during the fall semester 2020, winter semester 2021, or spring semester 2021! 

The counselling team will be seeing new clients again starting August 16th, 2021 and we look forward to connecting with you then. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes. In the meantime, these are some supports we suggest reaching out to. Your health and well-being is important.

YukonU Counselling Services

YukonU Counselling Services can help you with the demands of student life, promoting wellness, and building skills for lifelong success.

A counsellor brings training and skills to assist you in making sense of the problems you are experiencing, and works with you to develop preferred ways of living.

Counselling is free to all full- and part-time registered Yukon University students who are located in eligible regions. Regardless of where you are located, we are still here to support you! Our counselling team would like to help you find other counselling or support services if you are currently located outside of the eligible regions.

Counselling is voluntary and you may stop at any time.
