Psychological and Counselling Services
You can access psychological and counselling services in a safe, professional environment to deal with any issues affecting your life or study.
We provide a confidential service that focuses on short-term therapy.
Why see a counsellor?
Sometimes, certain issues are hard to discuss with family, friends or work colleagues, and you may want an independent party to confide in. A professional counsellor can help you resolve problems and prevent future issues from developing.
If you’re in an emergency and need immediate help, visit the Emergencies and after hours help page.
Our Counselling and Clinical Psychologists are highly qualified and have a range of expertise to provide quality professional service to students.
Group programs and workshops
We offer free support in group settings on a range of topics including anxiety skills development, dealing with depression, ADHD support groups and a host of other topics.
