Counselling Service

Who are we? 

The UWS Counselling Service is a team of qualified social workers and psychologists who are trained to work with diverse student populations on any issues of concern. If you're facing any barriers that may affect your study or want to optimise your study then the Counselling Service or Disability Service may be able to help.

Students and staff are encouraged to access free, confidential counselling services as early as possible before studies are affected. Students are able to use the free UWS Counselling Service for face-to-face sessions, phone or Skype sessions, or try eCounselling online. Staff are invited to use the Employee Assistance Program (EAP).
