If life is getting in the way of your studies you can talk one-on-one with our professionally qualified student counsellors. They can help you get the support you need and help lighten the load. This service is free and confidential.

Some of the issues they can help with include:

  • mental health, including anxiety and depression
  • debrief with you about out-of-school concerns like relationship issues, financial stress, homesickness, etc.
  • study or course pressures
  • guidance on Chisholm policies such as special consideration.

Your appointment can take place over the phone or via Zoom.
