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.
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.
