Where to find counselling services

Student life can sometimes be tough.

At La Trobe College Australia, we recognise that personal, interpersonal and environmental factors can impact learning.

Counselling provides students with a safe place to creatively explore and address any problem that might be affecting their studies. Common concerns include transition to life in Australia, relationship difficulties, loss of motivation for studying, questions of identity and self-esteem, depression and anxiety, coping with disabilities or dealing with grief or loss.

Glenn is the La Trobe College Australia student counsellor, he considers it a privilege to assist students seeking support regarding any difficulties. Glenn prioritises building a positive relationship with students to provide an encouraging and comfortable space. He draws on several approaches, techniques and strategies to benefit students.
