Peer counsellors – Who are we?
Like you, we are University of Ottawa students who used the Counselling Services for support in helping us overcome personal challenges that were getting in the way of our success at university. Our shared experience can help us understand and support you in what you are going through.
We have been trained to listen and provide informal emotional support to assist you in achieving your goals.
To connect with one of us, please speak to your counsellor at Counselling Services. We look forward to becoming part of your support network.
My name is Kali and I’m a fourth-year student in Psychology.
In my free time, I like to read, hike, cook, and hang out with my friends. There can be a lot of stress and anxiety that comes along with being a university student even if you are originally from Ottawa and you didn’t have to make the transition living in a new city. Regardless of how much support you have around you, it is always great to expand your support system.
I’m excited and hope to be a part of yours!
