Personal Counselling

It can often be helpful to talk to others about issues you are facing. If an impartial and supportive listener is what your need, the Learner Experience Office can help.  If you would like to talk with one of our counselling staff and faculty, please contact our office to book a confidential appointment (LE contact)

Should you wish an after-hours appointment or would like to speak with someone outside of the School, the LE Office would be pleased to assist you in making a referral.
