The Counselling Centre

The Counselling Centre

At Centennial College, all students can use our free, confidential counselling services. The Counselling Centre gives you a safe place to explore your thoughts and feelings.  Our mandate is to work with you to:

  • Identify and fix sources of stress that could be affecting your academic performance
  • Support your general wellbeing and positive mental health
  • Look at any issues you may have from a different perspective
  • Explore new possibilities and develop new coping skills
  • Learn new ways of communicating and developing meaningful relationships

The Counselling Centre offers culturally sensitive services that respect and appreciate the diversity of the college community.

What we do:

Personal Counselling: Helps you address personal issues such as stress, anxiety, depression, adjusting to college and relationship issues. It also helps you develop coping strategies, self-esteem, and confidence.

Crisis Intervention: If you are experiencing a crisis or emergency, such as suicidal thoughts, concern for your own safety, loss of a loved one, extreme sadness or emotional distress, you will be given priority and booked with the first available counsellor.

Consultation and Referrals: We consult with faculty and staff on your behalf and refer you to the correct professional services outside the college when needed, such as hospitals/doctors, specialty mental health services, addictions treatment, shelters, food bank and other services.
