Considering Counselling?

Counselling gives you some time and space to explore any issue that is of concern to you.

Counsellors are specially trained to listen attentively and provide a supportive, non-judgmental environment where you have the opportunity to engage in self-reflection, with a focus on your wellbeing and personal growth.

You can also get advice on where to find additional support and how best to move forward.

If you are interested in meeting with a counsellor in a confidential setting about the difficulties you are experiencing, the Student Counselling Service offers: Online Support, One to One Counselling and Groups & Workshops. Your first appointment at the Student Counselling Service will be a brief consultation appointment to help you figure out what will work best for you.

If you are a student struggling to cope, please do not hesitate to contact us. We are here to help you.

Examples of the issues students seek counselling for include:

  • Stress or Anxiety
  • Relationship Difficulties (family, romantic, platonic)
