Personal Counselling and Accessible Learning Services offers support for current students trying to manage the complexities of college life. Students are seen on a voluntary basis.
Our services can help students fulfil their personal and academic potential through individual and/or group supports.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, counselling and accessibility services are being offered online and by phone. Our services are free, confidential and available to all registered Seneca students. Students who feel they require support can reach out to our offices at Seneca’s Personal Counselling and Accessible Learning Services by phone at their campus extension. Appointments can be provided by phone or video chat.
If you are in crisis or have immediate concerns outside our hours of operation, the following resources are available:
Note for returning students: If you have already met with a Counsellor and have your accommodations set up in ClockWork, log in to student portal to have your letter distributed to your professor(s) for the current term.
Seneca counsellors are always approachable and supportive. They hold professional degrees in counselling and accessibility-related fields and balance their theoretical background with extensive practical experience. Our counsellors are continually updating their knowledge in order to meet the needs of students. Service staff are members of a variety of professional associations including: Ontario College Counsellors (O.C.C.), College Committee on Disability Issues (C.C.D. I.) and some professional colleges which are governed by the Regulated Health Care Professionals Act (RHPA).
Some students may have functional limitations that impact their ability to fully engage with their academic work. Identifying the appropriate academic accommodations for a student with a disability in the postsecondary environment is critical to ensure students are supported during their time at Seneca. Our counsellors work with students to identify individual accommodation needs so that students can more fully participate in their academic studies.
