At ACAP you have access by self-referral to our free and confidential counselling support service. Our team of counsellors are experienced, registered with national accrediting bodies, and are here to support you to work on your personal and academic potential.
Individual counselling support at ACAP is offered short-term. Enrolled students can access the service throughout their studies.
We understand that studying can be challenging, and your health and wellbeing are important to us. Our counsellors can provide advice, coping strategies and appropriate resources where needed for both personal and academic issues.
Our counsellors do not provide psychological assessments, mediation or support letters and counselling is only available to students currently in Australia.
If you need to contact the Counselling support team please email [email protected].
