Counselling & Accessibility Services

Counsellors provide a confidential atmosphere where you can explore any topic or situation and discuss any concerns you may have. Fanshawe College’s counsellors are professionally trained, have a wealth of experience and knowledge and can assist you in areas such as academic issues, career counselling and personal concerns. If you are a full-time student, you are welcome to make an appointment with any of Fanshawe College’ personal counsellors.

Visit Fanshawe's Counselling Services page or email

Gender-Based & Sexual Violence Support

Confidential support and options are available. The Sexual Violence Prevention Advisor can provide support and information about your options, which may include medical, counselling, reporting and academic accommodations. Sexual violence is never the survivor’s fault. It is not necessary to make a formal complaint of sexual violence in order to access support, services, or accommodations. The violence does not have to have taken place when you were a Fanshawe student, and you may access support for acts of violence that have taken place off-campus. We believe survivors. To learn more, visit our Gender-Based & Sexual Violence Support & Education page.
