Mental Health Counselling Appointments
We have centralized and embedded counsellors within various departments and faculties.
- If you are with the faculties of Commerce or Engineering, you can use the online booking process.
- You can book with other embedded counsellors by calling 613-533-2506.
- If you are new to mental health counselling, ask to book an appointment and a planning specialist will meet with you to discuss your needs.
- If you are already connected to a counsellor, ask for them by name. Priority is to maintain your connection with that counsellor; however, if they are not available, you will be given the option of seeing someone else
To cancel an appointment, call 613-533-2506 to leave a message (24/7) or speak to reception.
If you miss your appointment without providing at least 24 hours’ notice of cancellation, a 'No Show' fee may be applied to your SOLUS account.
Failure to attend appointments creates considerable delay in the provision of care for yourself, and blocks access to care for other students in need.
- If you need to cancel a psychiatry appointment, please call 613-533-2508
- Medical and mental health appointments cannot be cancelled via email
- Owing money for missed appointments does not prohibit you from accessing services

Professional Wellness Coaching
For students interested in improving their eating, developing proactive mindfulness strategies, or who want to quit or cut down on substance use (i.e., alcohol, tobacco, and/or cannabis).
Students who are seeking assistance for eating disorders or significant addictions should book a medical and/or mental health appointment. Peer Wellness Coaches do NOT provide counselling/therapy or design personal exercise/workout plans.
Peer Wellness Coaching
For students who want to be more physically active, decrease their sedentary time and/or sleep better. Learn more about Peer Wellness Coaching.
MUSE Biofeedback Mindfulness Appointments
Students use a guided meditation app and a MUSE headband that passively senses your brain activity. You receive real-time feedback to help you stay calm and focused. Once your session is over, you can review your results with a peer or staff member and can track your progress.
As an alternative, students can try the TAO mindfulness meditation library.
