Health & Safety

Counselling Services

At Ambrose, we believe that caring about your health and safety includes looking out for your mental and emotional health. That's why as an Ambrose student you can access confidential, personal, pastoral and vocational counselling at a low cost.

Our Counsellors

Dr. Jackie Stinton, Registered Psychologist (female)  

  • Available Fridays from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM.

Dustin Hrycun, MA (male)

  • Available Mondays from 1:00 PM to 8:00 PM.

Kate Kolskog, Registered Psychologist (female)

  • Available Wednesdays from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM.

Counselling Procedures & Policies

You can book appointments online. If you want to book in person, or if you have any questions or concerns, contact the Student Development Administrative Coordinator (phone: 403-410-2925).

Please note:

  • Ambrose substantially subsidizes counselling services; however, there is still a nominal fee of $30 per appointment. Fees for each scheduled appointment will be charged to your student account at the end of each month.
  • If you have extended health insurance coverage and you are seeing Dr. Stinton, you will be expected to utilize the insurance for payment through Dr. Stinton.
  • If you don’t show up for an appointment and you didn’t notify the Student Development Administrative Coordinator 24 hours prior to the appointment, your student account will be charged a $75 fee.
