About Us

Wellness and Counselling Services - available FREE OF COST - supports the academic, personal, and social growth of students from diverse backgrounds and with specific, individual needs. The college years can be times of accelerated growth and learning, significant challenges, and considerable stress. It is normal – and even expected – for students to encounter difficult or stressful events. However, when students use the resources available to them, there is a much greater chance of success and overall well-being.
Counselling Services are offered to assist students in building solutions to their own personal, emotional, or interpersonal concerns that may be impacting their academic success at Sheridan. 


Students have commonly sought counselling for issues such as:

  • Coping with anxiety and/or stress
  • Feelings of depression or sadness
  • Working effectively in groups and teams
  • Getting control of your drinking or drug use
  • Coping with loss and grief
  • Low energy and motivation  
  • Sexuality Concerns
  • Confidence and self-esteem
  • Relationship and family issues
  • Self-harm or suicidal feelings
  • Body image and eating disorders
  • Financial problems
  • Homesickness
  • Time Management
  • Counselling appointments are free and confidential. 


    All services are strictly confidential and no information is released to anyone without the student's written authorization unless required by law.
