Students Support and Counselling

We offer a confidential space for students to talk to a counsellor about various concerns. We understand that life can be challenging, students living far away from parents for the first time may encounter difficulties, there may be worries about the future, feeling like they might have chosen the wrong major, relationship problems, etc. As counsellors we aim to help you find your own answers. All counselling is confidential except when someone is in serious danger. In these rare cases we will discuss any potential break in confidentiality with you.
