Personal and Supportive Counselling

Counselling is available to help you deal with personal concerns that may be affecting your studies or personal well-being. We’ll work with you to explore what’s happening in your life and help you identify strategies to help.

Many students meet with a counsellor to discuss topics such as:

  • Stress management
  • Interpersonal relationships
  • Communication skills
  • Building self esteem
  • Adjustment to college
  • Developing assertiveness skills
  • Anger management
  • Relationship break up
  • Dealing with depression
  • Coping with grief and loss
  • Managing anxiety
  • Managing a crisis
  • Family difficulties
  • Questioning your sexuality

If more specialized or long-term therapy is a better fit for you, we can help you connect with community resources.

Crisis Counselling

Student Counselling Services makes every effort to support and assist students who are experiencing a personal crisis. We understand that emergencies requiring immediate attention can arise suddenly for students. Most of the time, a counsellor at RRC Polytech can meet with you on the same day when not being seen could lead to serious consequences or seriously aggravate your existing condition.

Some examples of a crisis situation are:

  • Suicidal thoughts
  • Thoughts about harming another person
  • Recent assault or abuse
  • Concerns about your own safety or the safety of someone else
  • Hallucinations or delusions
  • Recent death of a love one
  • Witness or experience of a traumatic event

If you believe your situation is a crisis that cannot wait for a regularly scheduled appointment, please come to one of our locations.

Notre Dame Campus – D102
Roblin Centre – P210

Also, see our Community Crisis Resources for helpful information to help you manage your person wellness.
