Welcome to the Student Counselling Clinic
Counselling is a process of supporting clients to identify and work through any issues they may have – including challenging life experiences or past problems that are impacting present feelings or behaviours. Below are some common reasons people seek general counselling:
- Study Career changes and work-related stress
- Feeling a lack of direction or purpose
- Confidence and self-esteem issues
- Communication and relationships issues
- Life transitions
- Grief and loss
- Stress, anxiety and depression,
- Moving beyond a relationship breakup
- Burnout and fatigue
- Financial stress
Usually, it’s not just one area of life that feels out of balance, but a combination of issues that contribute to an overall sense of confusion or distress. You may be struggling with thoughts and feelings about yourself, your life direction, or your relationships with others.
Counselling is a practical, helpful way to prioritise concerns and work through them at your own pace
Talking to friends or family may help, but often we’re still left feeling confused, and in need of some direction and support.
That’s where counselling comes in – Here at our Student Counselling Clinic we are here to support you, so you don’t have to figure things out alone. The truth is, counselling can address a whole range of issues, and no concern is too small.
Your feelings, your wellbeing and your personal goals are very important.
General counselling provides a safe, nonjudgmental space to discuss all of your concerns, and explore options and opportunities for change.
For some people, simply talking through issues can be beneficial, whilst others may need specific guidance or strategies to support them through a difficult time. Together we’ll identify the most constructive and useful way to make sense of your experience and bring about positive changes in your life.
When you call, you’ll speak with a member of our dedicated intake Counselling Clinic team. Your intake form will be completed where we spend some time with you to:
- Discuss your counselling needs
- Answer any questions you may have
- Recommend suitable counselling options for you
