Student Counselling Services at Nipissing University

Welcome to Student Counselling Services

Student Counselling Services is here to support your wellbeing throughout your academic journey at Nipissing University. Attending university can be an exciting and challenging experience. Student life often involves many changes and stressors: long hours, too little sleep, too much caffeine, poor diet, new relationships, and a changing environment. Sometimes coping with one or more of these stressors can be a lot to handle.

The professional staff of Nipissing University Student Counselling Services is here to help.

Nipissing University offers free and confidential personal counselling to all full-time, part time, undergraduate, and graduate students through Student Counselling Services.

Personal counselling is a way of exploring your emotional, personal, and interpersonal experiences; it is learning new skills and identifying goals. It is a collaborative process to explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours in a safe, non-judgmental and supportive atmosphere.

Students may attend counselling for many of different reasons; some examples could include homesickness, transition to university, stress, relationship issues, anxiety, depression, as well as complex mental health concerns.

Brief intervention involving referral assistance is also available to all alumni and previously registered students.​
