Changes to Student Counselling Service

Students in a consultation

The Counselling Service offers free and confidential short-term counselling to currently enrolled La Trobe University students.

Studying in Australia can be an exciting time in your life, but it can also be very stressful. We help a lot of international students to manage homesickness, relationship issues and stress. Sometimes students are dealing with mental health problems that have started before arriving in Australia.

From semester 1 2019, all new clients and clients who have not been to the service for 6+ months will speak with a Duty Worker for 15-20 minutes before being offered a counselling session.

Duty Workers will be available to speak with students from 9.30 am to 1 pm every day.

Drop in sessions will no longer be offered.
