The Counselling Service allows students to openly discuss any concerns and problems they may currently be experiencing while studying and living in Australia. Students can talk to a professional counsellor in a confidential setting.
For many students, this is a time in their life of accelerated growth, significant challenge, and considerable stress. Studying in a new country can emphasise the stress and present challenges to students that are difficult to cope with.
The Student Counsellor is here to help you learn how to deal with such challenges, so you can get the most out of your time at the college and life in Australia. The services provided are free of charge and you are welcome to see the Counsellor regarding a variety of areas including:
- Studying in a new country
- Difficulties with living arrangements
- Loneliness, and separation anxiety
- Self-esteem and confidence
- Physical abuse and trauma
- Family issues
- Interpersonal conflicts
- Relationship advice
- Finding employment
- Cultural or ethnic concerns
- Achievement conflicts
- Problems with drugs and alcohol
If you need to speak to the counsellor, book an appointment by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or speak with the Student Services Officer.
Students can also refer to the Student Handbook for other helpful services and resources related to support and care.
