The best time to get help is as soon as you realize you could use some—there’s no reason to wait when a team of professionals is here to help.
Counselling is a free resource for ULethbridge students, and all you need to do is send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 403-317-2845. On the ulethbridge.ca/counselling website, you can find information on personal counselling, group counselling, career counselling, wellness workshops, training & certificates, as well as resources for self-help and peer support.
Once you contact counselling, they will send you an intake form to better understand how to help you. Then you’ll be scheduled for an appointment.
People reach out to counselling for various reasons—from a death in the family, a breakup, or a bad test result that sent you spiralling. The reason is not as important as how you are feeling. Have the courage to reach out.
And just like many other things in life counselling requires a good fit, so be sure that you are matched with a counsellor that you feel comfortable with. If you would rather speak to a different counsellor, you can request to switch. Counselling isn’t for everyone, but it’s worth a shot.
