Personal counselling

Discussing things with a counsellor can help you address many concerns — anxiety, depression, communication issues, grief, relationship difficulties and program fit.

Counselling services are free for current SAIT students. 

Connect with counselling to:

  • acquire new skills to enhance academic performance
  • learn practical tools to overcome life challenges
  • develop strategies to support a healthy lifestyle
  • get support if you’re feeling overwhelmed, in crisis or need to talk.

Educational counselling 

Your academic achievements and future career goals are essential to your education at SAIT, and those demands can sometimes be overwhelming and interfere with your success. 

Our counsellors are here to help with common educational challenges students face, such as motivation, attention, test anxiety or group work.

They can also help you develop skills for staying calm when performing under pressure, such as presentations, practical exams, etc. 

Career counselling 

Talk to our counsellors if you are considering changing programs but don’t know what career field to choose. 

Career counselling helps you identify life and career interests and find matching career options.  

Various assessments and exercises may be used to identify the interests, values, abilities and personality preferences to consider
