Counselling offers guidance and support to students at every stage of their college life and helps them to explore, clarify and understand any problems or concerns that are affecting them. Counselling, guidance and support for students helps them in career planning and also guides them as to how they can build a profile of relevant skills and qualities, both academic and non-academic activities. It also helps them in planning for short and long-term goals and for job opportunities.
Our counsellors offer confidential support, advice and counselling to all students, including specialist assistance where required. The department also deals with crisis situations, should they arise, and with long-term issues, including personal, relationship and financial difficulties.
Counselling aims to help students to take responsibility for their own decisions, to become more aware of their personal resources and to become more able to cope with all aspects of life. The student counsellors will be pleased to discuss any problems you have in conditions of complete confidentiality.
