Psychotherapy is an option under this pathway. 

Appointments are maximum 50 minutes in duration, with a maximum of 32 student sessions available per week. 

Solution Focused Sessions

A solution focused session incorporates positive psychology principles and practices.  These sessions provide an opportunity for students to work toward a solution to their presenting problem.  This is done in collaboration with a Wellness Navigator (registered Clinical Counsellor), Psychologist or an advanced Trainee (supervised by a licensed professional).  One session is typical; however, if deemed necessary, additional follow-up may be considered.
