We're here to support you

Counselling Services are a part of Student Services, and are designed to provide support to students during their time at St. Lawrence College. Meeting with a friendly and professional counsellor with whatever may be challenging or troubling, can make a difference. Our counsellors provide a wide range of strategies and supports to assist you in doing your best during your time at St. Lawrence.

Who should seek counselling?

Any student of St. Lawrence College is welcome to seek service.  We understand that being in college can be an exciting time, but that it can also be accompanied with stressful times.

Some common areas of concern addressed in counselling are:

  • transition to college life,
  • adjustment to disability or health related concerns,
  • anxiety or mood issues,
  • stress management,
  • conflict with family and friends,
  • grief/loss,
  • relationship problems,
  • self-esteem,
  • sexuality,
  • substance use,
  • and much more.

How can counselling assist you?

During times of personal distress it can be helpful to have a safe, non-judgmental, confidential space to come and share your concerns. Speaking to an impartial third party can often assist with alleviating strong emotions, develop a more manageable perspective on the issue/s, support the development of determining appropriate next steps and/or simply be there to listen.  Success from counselling depends on a person’s willingness to be honest, open and committed to making change/s.
