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 of the reasons students come to counselling are; dealing with stress, losses, difficult relationships, feeling isolated or depressed, concerns with school performance and many others. 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, a counselling professional is available to meet with you and help you to define the problem and to work towards a possible solution.
Counselling at Dawson College is completely confidential and free for all enrolled Dawson students. The usual way to meet with a counselling professional is to come to one of our drop-ins. During a drop-in visit you will meet privately with a counselling professional and work out a plan of action that addresses your needs.
Our drop-in times are posted daily outside of room 2D.2 and on MyDawson.
