Queen's University

Welcome to Counselling Services

To make an appointment with an experienced professional counsellor for confidential crisis support or one-to-one counselling students can contact the Counselling Service at Health, Counselling and Disability Services at 613-533-6000 x78264 or by email at counselling.services@queensu.ca.

Students can also access our many embedded counselling services. To see a list of the full services available, including contact information, please click here.

While university can offer many positive opportunities for engagment, growth, and learning; it can also be a source of pressure, stress, and overwhelming experiences. Sometimes these challenges, while tough on their own, can magnify other difficulties or trigger emotional vulnerabilities as well.

At Counselling Services we are here to help. We work to foster student success and well-being while providing services that respect the values and unique needs of all people.

We are committed to providing services which respect the dignity and values of all people inclusive of age, gender, ethnicity, physical qualities, sexual identity and ability. We encourage you to come in and make an appointment.
