We are happy to announce that online counselling is now available for Part-time and Full-time BCIT Students

Online Counselling

Everyone needs someone to talk to. Online video counselling is a safe and secure way to speak with a practitioner matched to your needs, anywhere and anytime.

Getting access to online counselling is easy and can be done in two ways:

  1. Simply visit www.mywellnessplan.ca and select your school from the drop-down menu. From there select the Video Counselling button which will take you directly to the online counselling site where you can set up your profile and begin the process of booking a session with a counsellor.
  2. Through myWellness, complete your free and confidential mental health assessment. Once you have completed your assessment you will be able to access online counselling directly from your Personalized Action Plan. You also have the option of uploading the results of your assessment directly to your online counselling profile so the counsellor you schedule an appointment with can learn about the challenges you are facing and support you need even before your session takes place!

With online counselling you choose a session time with a counsellor that best suits your needs and schedule. Online counselling sessions are available in 30, 60, and 75 minute timeslots. When scheduling your appointment, simply select the session time you are most comfortable with.

Online counselling appointments are available on days and times that can be chosen by the student including evenings and weekends! Availability varies per counsellor but once you have selected a counsellor you will be provided with their schedules and times they are available. Simply select the time and day that best suits your schedule to book your appointment.
