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.*

All of the information you share with us is completely confidential. No information can be accessed by University administrators, instructors, outside agencies or others unless you choose to sign a release. Counselling is voluntary and you may stop at any time. You’re in control.

*Eligible Regions for Virtual Counselling:
