Counselling

Feeling down? Anxious? Having trouble in your friendships or relationships? Or feel like you’re having trouble coping with life at University? STU Counselling can help with that! 

Counselling allows you to identify realistic goals for yourself, and gain the skills that you need to accomplish them. Counselling allows you to gain a better understanding of yourself by exploring your patterns of thought, feelings, behaviours, and the ways in which these things are negatively affecting your life. Counselling also provides the information and skills you need to cope so that you can feel better. It’s also an opportunity to learn about the resources that are available to support you and make your experience at STU as positive as possible.
