Access Counselling

College can be a big transition, you may experience changes and challenges within yourself, with friends and family, with living arrangements, with life goals, with courses or with other areas of your life. We're here to help.

Individual counselling

Any Camosun student may access confidential counselling.  Our services are short term in nature and are meant to support you as a student.   You have the option to come for an in-person, video or phone appointment.  Please read the extra information at the bottom of this page if you are an Indigenous or International student.  

Access to our Same Day appointments begins at 9am each day by phone (this is true for Interurban even on days we begin service at 10:30am).  The only way to secure an appointment is by speaking to the Counselling Assistant (not by leaving an email or voicemail).  

Appointments can be booked by calling 250-370-3571 or 250-370-4925

Indigenous Students

As part of Camosun’s Indigenization Policy G-2.2 and our commitment to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Call to Action, Counselling Services is committed to providing culturally responsive service for Indigenous Students. In order to work in a good way, it is possible that the length of session and duration of connection may be more flexible in this context.

Counselling services for students away from campus

Students located inside Canada

For students residing in Canada, Same Day and Pre-Booked and Follow up sessions will all continue to be available as part of regular services while the College adapts to social distancing requirements.  These appointments may all be offered by phone or web-based video counselling.

Students located outside of Canada

Due to privacy, legal and ethical limitations Camosun College cannot provide counselling services to students located outside of Canada.

Students are invited to access Here2Talk (24 hours/7 days a week) confidential mental health counselling and community referrals for BC post-secondary students through app, phone and web.
