The Counselling Centre

We understand this is a difficult time and that information is changing rapidly. Your health and safety are a priority for the Counselling Centre staff and we are following recommendations to limit social contact as much as possible.

Based on this decision, we are continuing to offer counselling by phone instead of in-person counselling at this time.

Please contact or phone 902-420-5615 to change your appointment or book an intake.

Please see the Saint Mary's COVID-19 web page for most up-to-date information on campus operations. 

Our service is available to all registered and attending Saint Mary's University students. We offer individual personal counselling, sleep consultations and group education sessions. Our team of professionals can help you meet your mental health goals. We understand how stressful university life can sometimes be and how making small changes can have a huge impact. Our staff are generalists in their training with experience working with University students.

Academic Year (September - May) Hours of operation:
8:30am - 12:00pm; 1:00pm - 4:30pm

Summer (June - August) Hours of Operation:
8:30am - 12:00pm; 1:00pm - 4:00pm 

We try our best to respond as quickly as possible to meet the needs of our students. Please Note: We are not an emergency clinic therefore we will refer all emergencies to the QEII Emergency Department (for ages 19 years old and over), located on Robie Street or the IWK Emergency Department (for 19 years of age and under), located on South Street.
