The Counselling Centre

Centennial College provides free, confidential counselling services to all students.  We offer you a safe place to explore your thoughts and feelings.  Our mandate is to work with you to:

  • Identify and address stressors affecting your academic performance
  • Support your general well-being and positive mental health
  • Look at issues from a different perspective
  • Explore 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, adjustment to college, relationship issues, etc.  And to help you develop coping strategies, self-esteem and confidence.

Crisis Intervention – if you are experiencing a crisis or identify an 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 provide referrals to professional services outside the college when needed, such as hospitals/doctors, specialty mental health services, addictions treatment, shelters, food banks, etc.
