UNB Counselling Services offers free and confidential support services to full- and part-time UNB and STU students. If you feel like you need some support you can book an Initial Consultation appointment. 

Our team of Counsellors, Doctoral & Masters-level interns use a number of different approaches to help students.  When you meet with a member of our team for an initial consultation, one of the goals for the session will be to help you create a treatment plan that will meet your needs.

Some treatment options include:

  • Referral and assistance in accessing other campus and community resources

  • Self-directed resources like apps, websites or books

  • Supported online psycho-education and self-study (Therapist Assisted Online)

  • Group counselling

  • Short term individual counselling
