Counselling Resources for Residents


Residents have access to a counselling service provided by the School of Medicine and Queen’s Student Wellness Services (SWS).  Services are provided through SWS’s office in the LaSalle building at 146 Stuart Street.  As such, services are provided at arm’s length from the School of Medicine for the purposes of maintaining anonymity and confidentiality. Appointments may be requested by contacting Counselling Services at 613.533.6000 ext. 78264 or by email at counselling.services@queensu.ca.

Therapy / counselling is available free of charge.  Lunch appointments and some after-hours appointments are also available. Additionally, sessions are also available virtually or via phone for those who are unable to attend sessions in person. One initial face-to -face session is often preferable prior to scheduling these alternatives. For those who may prefer a self-help approach, the following self-help workbooks are free and accessible online: http://www.queensu.ca/hcds/workbook.php.
