We would like to acknowledge that we are working on the traditional territory of the Snuneymuxw, Quw’utsun and Tla’amin people. It is here that each member of our counselling team provides professional and confidential support to currently registered VIU students. We can assist you with personal counselling and crisis response and we offer workshops and groups to support personal growth and resilience. In addition, counsellors provide consultation with Faculty and class orientations. We look forward to meeting you.

* Please note: International Student Counsellors only see international students and the Indigenous Student Counsellor only sees Indigenous students (self-identifying).
