Counselling Service

Who are we?

The Western Sydney University Counselling Service is a team of qualified social workers and psychologists who are trained to work with diverse student populations on any issues of concern. If you're facing any barriers that may affect your study or want to optimise your study then the Counselling Service, Welfare Service or Disability Service may be able to help.

Students are encouraged to access free, confidential counselling services as early as possible before their studies are affected. Students are able to use the free Western Sydney University Counselling Service for face-to-face sessions. In situations where face-to-face counselling is difficult for students, the service also offers Skype counselling, phone counselling, or eCounselling services. In general, particularly for more sensitive or complex matters, we recommend that you make a personal appointment at one of our offices. Please use the contact number below to reach us.

If you have an urgent matter please contact the central booking line on 1300 668 370 (option 4 then option 1) to enquire if an appointment can be arranged.

Staff are invited to use the Employee Assistance Program (EAP).

Mental health and Wellbeing is everyone's business and we are all likely to be impacted at some time in our lives by mental health changes, either personally or in someone we know. For more information visit the Mental health and wellbeing website or visit one of these helpful pages:
