At CPUT all students have access to a range of high quality and holistic services offered by the institution’s Student Counselling unit.

The unit has a presence on the Cape Town, Bellville, Mowbray and Wellington Campuses and their services are also available to all students studying at the institution’s service points.

The units are staffed by psychologists and social workers, each skilled to offer counselling and therapy. Other services include career development such as preparation for job interviews, welfare services, academic support and skills development. All services are free of charge.

The unit also has a resource library that contains self-help material and up-to-date information on a variety of topics related to student life.

Psychologist AB de Villiers encourages students to make use of their services.

“If you need help, then come to us as soon as possible. This is a safe and confidential environment,” he says.

During the next few weeks, the unit’s staff members will meet with first year students and share much needed tips on how to cope with the demands of university life.
