The Counselling Service provides free and confidential counselling for all students. Our counsellors are professionally qualified psychologists and social workers. We offer support, information and assistance to clarify and resolve a range of issues, which might otherwise interfere with personal wellbeing or academic effectiveness. Personal issues may include stress, anxiety, depression, bereavement, relationship problems or family difficulties. We also assist with adjustment to university life and address academic issues such motivation, concentration and procrastination.
In order to see you as quickly as possible and get the support you may need, the Counselling Service uses a triage system.
A triage appointment is a 20 minute interview with a triage officer who will briefly assess your current situation and may book you in to see one of our counsellors or connect you with other services that are better able to help you address whatever difficulties you are experiencing.
Triage appointments are available Monday to Friday from 10 to 12.30pm and 2 to 4pm.These appointments cannot be prebooked and are made on the day.
If you are an existing client of the service you may request an appointment directly with your counsellor, however if it has been twelve months since you have seen a counsellor, you will need to be seen by a triage officer.
