Important

Given the exceptional circumstances we are all currently experiencing, we have made some changes to facilitate the referral of students to the Counselling Service.

We have streamlined all inquiries and referrals to a single point of entry. All applications for distance counselling, as well as any student-centred mental health related inquiries, can be sent to Dawson Psychological Counselling at Psychologicalcounselling@dawsoncollege.qc.ca.

This email is monitored from 9:00 to 17:00, Monday to Friday.

Please note we are experiencing a higher than normal volume of requests, and there may be a delay in accessing our services. Rest assured your email will be responded to as quickly as possible.

If you are at risk of harm to yourself or others, or require immediate care, call 9-1-1 or go directly to the nearest emergency room.

Under guidelines issued by l’Ordre des Psychologues du Québec, counselling appointments are only available to students currently residing in the province of Quebec.

PERSONAL COUNSELLING

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.
