Student Assist Counsellor

Our Student Assist team now includes a qualified counsellor!

Common reasons that students see a counsellor include feeling anxious, overwhelmed, or like they’re losing control of a situation. If that sounds like you, or if you have any other concerns at all, our counsellor  would be more than happy to listen and work collaboratively with you to find tools to navigate your emotions.

You can contact Student Assist to make an appointment with Vanesse, or simply drop in and  check availability. There’s no limit on how many sessions you can have!

Other Counselling Services

UWA Student Support Services also has a team of psychologists available to provide a free, professional and confidential service to students. To access this service you’ll need to attend a triage appointment. Click here for triage session times and further information on the counselling service.

They also run workshops for students on a variety of topics, including overcoming exam anxiety, adjusting to Perth and UWA, staying focused and feeling great.

There are many other excellent free or low-cost support services available on and off campus. See our mental health mind map for details!

If you want to discuss any issue or need help finding the support service that best meets your needs, contact Student Assist for a fast, friendly response and confidential advice.
