Welcome to the Student Counselling Service (SCS)

Being at university can bring up some predictable but also some unexpected problems. Don’t feel alone, you can #LeanOnUs

The SCS recognises and values the dignity and diversity of all students using our services. Our staff members and volunteers are committed to providing an inclusive service. 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.

Mission: To provide a compassionate, inclusive and student-centred service, embedding high quality social integration, academic development and mental health services in line with the University strategy.

Vision: A resilient, high quality service, responsive to the increasing needs and diversity of TCD’s students and complimentary to the University’s overarching goals. We will work in partnership with students, staff and external stakeholders to expand and embed outreach, social, academic and emotional wellbeing initiatives, to promote the graduate attributes and to secure additional resources and funding, ensuring a robust, innovative and sustainable service for the future.
