Group Counselling

From time to time, Wellness will conduct topic-specific group counselling sessions base on observed needs of our students.  Group counselling enables students to give and receive support from other with similar issues, gain understanding of problems and explore possible solutions, practice interpersonal skills in a safe group setting, learn more about how you come across to others, increase observation and feedback skills, enhance problem-solving skills, improve emotional expressiveness, decrease social isolation, and develop good communication skills.
