Why do students come to counselling?

The top 5 reasons students come to BCIT Counselling are to get support with Anxiety, Depression, Relationships, Stress Reduction, and Academic Progress/Pressures.

BCIT Counsellors are also here to help you:

  • Sort through a wide variety of personal concerns
  • Enhance your educational performance and maximize your success as a student
  • Build decision-making and problem-solving skills
  • Work toward your educational, personal, and career goals
  • Get support and respond to a crisis, trauma, or major life event

Check out our Mental Health at Home page for tips on maintaining your mental health when away from campus.

Practicum Training Program

Counselling and Student Development is also an educational site and takes pride in our counsellor-in-training practicum program that brings Master’s-level counselling trainees to our team on a part-time basis to work under the direct supervision of our Director of Clinical Training. When booking your appointment, you may be provided with the option to meet with a counsellor trainee.

Questions about this program can be directed to Ray deVries at 604-432-8608.
