We offer high-quality, free and confidential counselling

Counsellors provide helpful tools, strategies and perspectives on personal, relationship, study or work-related difficulties. Counselling can help you feel better, find solutions to problems and make lasting changes in your life.

Over the past three years, our service has provided support and counselling for mental health and personal difficulties to over 4000 students from diverse backgrounds and cultures, LGBTIQ people and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples.

It is estimated that about 20% of people living in Australia have mental health difficulties in any one year.

If you need help, it's important to talk to someone. Counselling is about you—and how we can support you to feel better, achieve better and have a better life.
