Counselling

Koala

If you are thinking of becoming a student or are a current student (on or off campus), then you can access our free and confidential counselling service during office hours (Mon. to Fri. 9.00 am to 4.00pm).

General and academic staff at UNE can access counselling support via UNE's Employee Assistance Program (EAP).

Our mission is to provide students with the support you need to succeed in your studies at UNE. Study does not occur in a vacuum. Things happen that can impact on your ability to be as focussed, motivated, satisfied or organised as you normally would be. If you are unsure how to talk to those around you about your concerns, it can be helpful to run things past a counsellor. You might, for example, want some coaching on how to tackle academic concerns such as managing your time, avoiding procrastination, overcoming exam or presentation anxiety, or self-doubts about your abilities. Or you might want to tackle personal concerns such as relationships (with friends, work colleagues, partners, family), managing stress, adjusting to being at university, home sickness, a sudden loss or crisis/trauma, low mood or depression, or whether to study or not.

We provide face-to-face and phone counselling /coaching to individuals and groups on an appointment basis. For phone appointments, we will phone you at the prearranged time (on your landline number if possible, otherwise your mobile number). We also use Skype as a means of providing support online (with the option of video via webcam). Do let us know if you would like a Skype appointment.

The counselling team comprises professionally qualified and registered social workers, counsellors and/or psychologists.
