Types of Appointments

Same Day/One-at-a-Time Counselling

To assist and support as many MUN students as possible this year, we have added daily slots for virtual "drop-in" appointments. This is a self-contained 50 minute consultation with a SWCC mental health professional focused on one current concern or question. One-at-a-Time works much like a physician walk-in clinic, it offers you counselling support one session at a time, at the time you need it. It's a focused form of counselling that is well suited to the needs of many university students.

Students will leave One-at-a-Time with a plan for next steps and info on relevant resources. After following through on this plan student clients can return when they need to for further sessions, but often find this one focused session meets their immediate needs and provides clear guidance to help determine what to do next.

Same Day/One-at-a-Time counselling appointments are booked on a first-come/first-served basis by emailing samedaycounselling@mun.ca (*as we will be calling by phone to coordinate your appointment time, please include in your email request your contact phone number, student number and where you are currently residing)

Intake Consultations

This option provides students with the opportunity to meet with a registered psychologist or doctoral resident to assess their psychological functioning and develop a plan specific to the student's needs. 

Psychotherapy is an option under this pathway. 

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

Case Management: 

This option allows a wellness navigator to assist students with a variety of needs through the coordination of appropriate internal (MUN or SWCC professional services) and external (community, professional, or electronic) services and the provision of support. 

Group therapy is an option under this pathway. 

Appointments are maximum 50 minutes in duration, with a maximum of 40 student sessions available per week. 

Psychotherapy

This option allows students to meet with a clinician and collaborate and communicate with them within a safe and supportive environment. 

It is intended to help the client address ways of thinking, feeling, or behaving that are problematic in their lives; process concerns related to relationships with others or difficult life experiences; improve skills; find relief from emotional or psychological distress. 

Group Therapy

There are 2 types of group therapy (process & psychoeducational) 

Process groups are closed so that difficult, often deeply personal issues can be disclosed, whereas psychoeducational groups can be either in the form of an open, drop-in, or closed group.
