The University provides a free and confidential counselling service that is available to all undergraduate and postgraduate students, including students studying entirely online. Students can access up to 6 counselling sessions in a calendar year. 

Our counsellors have qualifications in psychology and social work and are highly experienced in a broad range of areas including mental health, education, cross cultural counselling, disability, sexual diversity, drugs and alcohol, trauma, sexual assault and family and relationship issues.


The service is open Monday-Friday, 8:45am to 5:00pm at the main campus at Bedford Park. We can also provide face-to-face counselling appointments at Sturt and Tonsley Park Campuses. For those who are not on these campuses, we can provide counselling appointments via telephone and Skype.  

If you are new to the counselling service, please email us on and leave your full name, phone number and student ID and a counsellor will contact you by phone. Please take note of how we handle your confidential information.

If you have seen a counsellor previously and wish to make another appointment, please call on 82012118 or contact your counsellor by email.
