Counselling Services

TRU counsellors promote and support the career development, academic success and personal growth of all TRU students, and subject to availability the career development of future students.

Counsellors work alongside students to develop strategies for improved academic performance; they also offer support with personal assessment tools and workshops. Short-term individual counselling is also available and focuses on creating action plans and support networks that combat stress, anxiety, depression and other personal issues.

The Counselling office is a respectful, safe and affirming atmosphere for students of all races, ability, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, age, culture and socioeconomic status.
