Access counselling services

If you’re struggling with the transition to university life, there’s always somebody you can talk to for support.

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.

The counselling service is free, by appointment, and confidential.
