What to Expect When You Contact Us

Speaking with a counsellor can help you gain perspective to respond more effectively to your difficulties. Counselling begins here with an initial assessment session where you and your counsellor explore the impact of what you bring and your goals for counsellingSome challenges can be fully addressed in this initial session, but those that are more complex may require further sessions. However, the aim of our service is to keep counselling focused and efficient, with most students in our service availing themselves of up to 4 sessionsSome students find that groups are as effective or even more effective than one-to-one counselling.   

We can also connect you to other support services, both internal Student Services and external professional services. We encourage students to use online supports such as Togetherall post counselling to maintain positive mental health. Our waiting time is usually within 2 weeks but can be longer in the peak times. The service isconfidential unless you or someone else is at serious risk. If you are experiencing an emergency that cannot wait, please let us know and we will provide a sameday appointment.
