Individual Counselling

What Individual Counselling is available?

In situations that are uncertain and evolving such as this, you may experience stress, anxiety or sadness. Counselling and Psychological Services (CAPS) have developed a tipsheet on how to manage feelings of stress or distress about COVID-19. You can also explore other helpful resources on looking after your mental health and wellbeing during this challenging time.

Counselling and Psychological Services (CAPS) provides free, confidential, short-term professional counselling to currently enrolled students of the University of Melbourne.

Our Counsellors are psychologists and mental health social workers who are experienced in working with a variety of people and presenting issues. People attend counselling to talk about personal, emotional, or mental health issues which might be affecting their study and life.  

To book an appointment, you can:

  • Book online on the CAPS website

More information about individual counselling, making an appointment, and current opening hours can be found on the CAPS website.
