We strive to meet the unique needs of each student irrespective of age, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, marital status, family status, religion, socioeconomic status, disability, ethnicity, culture, or membership of the traveller community.

We offer free, confidential and non-judgemental support to registered students of Trinity College Dublin and the Marino Institute of Education, who are experiencing personal and/or academic concerns. Our team of qualified counsellors, learning strategists and S2S staff, are committed to promoting and protecting wellbeing and success throughout a diverse student body.

No matter who you are, no matter what your situation is, the Student Counselling Services are here to support you through your difficulties.

A message to the TCD Community in the aftermath of the Nice terror attack 14th July 2016:

The TCD Student Counselling Service unites with all nations in shared shock and upset after the loss of life in the very recent terror attack in Nice. French students, classmates, those who know family or friends in the area will naturally be shocked and horrified.

In the aftermath of such disaster, it's normal to feel upset sad, anxious, fearful and angry or any mix of these emotions. We encourage people to reach out to family, friends, counsellors, or peer supporters for support and guidance in finding effective and healthy ways to cope. In the coming days and weeks, it is important to look out for and support each other.

A support gathering will be held on Monday 18th July at 1pm in the Global Room, Watts Building - for anyone affected by these events.

Any student needing support currently is welcome to attend   a group support meeting at the Student Counselling Service, 7-9 Sth Leinster Street today Friday 15/07/2016 at 3pm.

If you have been affected in any way by this event, be assured we are here to offer support. There are 1:1 appointments available or the option of being seen as a group. Please make contact with the Student Counselling Service on (01) 8961407.
