Counselling Package for Students

Are you a student currently in need of support? You’ve come to the right place.

Going to college or university means a major life transition – everything is new and sometimes it feels like you “need to start over.” Students find it hard to know what to expect and it is common that the transition from secondary school to college/university is perceived as highly stressful. Studying and preparing for exams are part of the stress, but other stressors can also include: the feeling of isolation, work-life imbalance, acute or chronic mental health issues, financial difficulties, cultural differences, fear of failure, etc.  

At times, students tend to forget how important self-care is.  During our sessions, we will look for healthy coping strategies which will help you feel balanced again. 

Please fill out the application form (see below) and we will get back to you in the next 24 hours. If you don’t hear back from us after one business day, please feel free to call our office. We look forward to connecting with you. 

With love,

Our Aster Counselling Team

FAQ

Registered Clinical Counsellors have a Master’s degree in the counselling field while Registered Psychologists have additional training including expertise in assessments. If you are solely looking to do an assessment/obtain a diagnosis, we would recommend you to see a Registered Psychologist. 

Treatment is different for everyone as we are all unique. During your counselling sessions, there will be room to discuss your treatment plan.

Most insurance companies will cover therapy sessions with Registered Clinical Counsellors. However, we recommend you to contact your insurance to check if RCC’s are covered under your insurance plan. 

We are able to direct bill for clients with Green Shield Canada insurance. For all other insurance companies we are unable to do direct billing for counselling sessions with Registered Clinical Counsellors. Payment will be processed at the end of each session, and you will be able to send in your receipt to your insurance, if applicable.
