Counselling Centre

The Counselling Centre promotes, supports and enhances mental health and wellbeing within the University community.

The centre provides short-term early intervention services via individual counselling for currently enrolled students experiencing mental health, wellbeing, or personal concerns. In addition, the centre offers complimentary programs, seminars, self-help resources, and community mental health service information, with a focus on building resilience and enhancing student wellbeing.

Our Counsellors all have professional qualifications either as psychologists, social workers, or an equivalent postgraduate counselling qualification. Thay also have a minimum of several years of relevant clinical experience and extensive training in counselling practice. In addition, they have particular expertise and experience in using counselling approaches that are suitable for adults with a wide range of personal, psychological, and study-related concerns. These include mental health concerns such as depression or anxiety.

As a client of the Counselling Centre, you may choose to see another counsellor if you do not think you have found the best match for you. If you have more questions about this, please do not hesitate to discuss with us.
