Meet UBC’s Counsellors in Residence
Freeman Woolnough, CCC, RCC
Top reasons to make an appointment
- Feeling overwhelmed
- Relationship troubles
- Loss and/or grief
- Past experience of physical, sexual, or emotional violence
- Other mental health challenges
What to expect
You’ll come in for a 50-minute session, where Serena or Freeman will listen to your needs and help you meet your immediate personal goals. Many students find that a single counselling session helps them to get on track and improve their well-being.
Serena or Freeman may also recommend self-directed resources, workshops and coaching, group therapy, or individual short-term counselling. If longer-term counselling is needed, they will help connect you with resources and options in the local community.
In addition to daytime appointments, the Counsellors in Residence are able to book appointments in the early evening and on weekends.
