Counselling services

Seeking counselling takes courage. Knowing when you need help and asking for it is a sign of strength. To support you, we have counseling services available on campus free of charge. So if you’re experiencing a barrier to success in school, work, relationships, or other areas of your life, get in touch – our AUArts counsellor can help.

Make an appointment

Counselling is offered remotely through MS Teams or by phone.

You can book an appointment by email (counselling@auarts.ca), through the MS Bookings App (instructions below), or by phone at 403.284.7666. (NOTE: because the counsellors are working remotely, there may be a delay in receiving a response if you contact by phone)

  • Select “Intake” if you have not been seen this academic year.
  • Select “Counselling Appointment” if you’ve completed a screening.
