Welcome to Trent Counselling Services
We are excited to start the new 2021/2022 school year with a brand new intake process for all students. Please be patient with us as we fine-tune our new system to offer students virtual consultations.
If you are in crisis please contact us directly or visit our crisis resources page outside of our business hours. In an emergency or if you are unable to keep yourself safe please call 911 or visit your nearest hospital.
