Problems, worries and concerns are part of everyone’s life from time to time. Sometimes problems can seem so overwhelming that you have difficulty concentrating on your studies and managing your day to day obligations. Confidential personal counselling can help you to understand and confront the challenges you face.

Personal counselling provides an opportunity to explore your concerns in a supportive and non-judgmental environment. Some reasons students come to counselling are: dealing with stress, loss, difficult relationships, feeling isolated or depressed, concerns with school performance, as well as other reasons.

Sometimes students avoid seeking help when they feel unmotivated or have a vague sensation that something isn’t right but aren’t sure what it is. Whether you know what is troubling you or aren’t sure, meeting with a counselling professional can help you to define the problem and work towards a possible solution.

Counselling at Dawson College is a free and confidential service for all enrolled Dawson students.
