Psychological Counselling

Psychological Counselling

Through psychological counselling, students are encouraged to understand the nature of their difficulties, develop different perspectives as well as learn effective coping skills. Counselling is also a learning process which facilitates self-exploration and continuous personal development.

Counsellors from Wellness and Counselling Centre (WACC) are ready to accompany you as you adjust to university life or overcome hurdles and brave stormy weather.

When to see a Student Counsellor

You may benefit from seeing a counsellor when you:

  • experience problems in adapting to the university environment
  • feel unhappy, unmotivated or troubled for prolonged periods
  • wish to understand more about yourself
  • feel that you are not doing as well as you should in your studies
  • wish to improve your relationships
