Counselling & Psychological Support

Offering free confidential psychological support to Deakin students, our counsellors are all highly skilled psychologists and social workers.

We will work with you to understand and manage issues that are impacting on your ability to reach your potential. Our service provides short term psychological support. Where presenting issues may require long term therapy or specialist help a referral will be made to community based services.
