Counselling Support

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.

We understand that studying can be challenging and your health and wellbeing are important to us.

Our counsellors can provide advice and coping strategies for a range of issues such as motivation, time-management and dealing with stress. They can also support you with personal issues including relationship issues, family issues, self-esteem and times of crisis. However, counselling support is only offered short-term, one or a few sessions depending on intensity of issue or concern. Students can access the service again at a later stage throughout their study (but not for on-going issues).
