Wellness Services and Resources

WE'RE HERE TO SUPPORT YOU.

Wellness Services are a part of Student Services, and are designed to provide support to students during their time at St. Lawrence College. Whether one-on-one or in a group, our counsellors provide a wide range of strategies and supports to assist you in doing your best during your time at St. Lawrence College.

COUNSELLING

Meeting with a friendly and professional counsellor with whatever may be challenging or troubling, can make a difference.

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.

For students who want to connect with someone who understands the unique needs of Indigenous students, our Indigenous Counsellor is available tri-campus.

Indigenous Counsellor

Shé:kon, Karennenhá:wi niyónkyats. Kanyen’kehá:ka na’kya’tò:ten tánon’ wakenyáhton. Kenhtéke nikìteron. Hello, my name is Karrennehá:wi (She Carries Music), pronounced Ga-ren-na-how-we and I am Kanyen’keha:ka Mohawk. I belong with the Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte, sit with the Turtle Clan and live on Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory. I believe student wellness is holistic, maintaining balance and inner peace may be a difficult task during the hectic school year, but if you need some help or just want to chat, stop by, I look forward to meeting you.

To book an appointment with Holly, please contact wellness@sl.on.ca.
