Book An Appointment

Counselling offers a place to talk about and reflect on whatever is troubling you in a safe, supported and confidential environment.

We believe in timely access to Counselling support. In order to facilitate this we offer the following:

  • Triage through our Triage and Assessment Counsellors, so we can attend to those most at risk psychologically or academically
  • Our Counsellors work primarily using a short term therapy model; this means we can continue to free up appointments and respond to the flow of new students
  • Access to workshops and online resources

What to expect when you come to counselling

  • When you book into a counselling support your first appointment will be an assessment appointment. 
  • In an assessment appointment the Counsellor will explain to you how counselling operates, and together with the counsellor you will establish a plan of support. 
  • A support plan might include further counselling through counselling support, referral to another service and/or practical support.
  • Your information is protected by our privacy and confidentiality statement.
