If life is getting in the way of your studies, you can talk one-on-one with our professionally qualified personal counsellors.

Our counsellors can help you get the support you need and help lighten the load. This might include discussing immediate issues or concerns, or building on your strengths and coping skills.

Some of the issues they can help with include:

  • Mental health concerns, including anxiety and depression
  • Relationship issues
  • Financial stress
  • Family violence
  • Study or course pressures
  • Guidance on Chisholm policies such as special consideration

Chisholm’s Personal Counsellors can offer a limited number of sessions, usually up to 6 sessions.  

If you need longer term support or more specialist assistance, our counsellors can provide information about community-based service providers or direct you to your GP for more information.
