Individual counselling and therapy

Counselling support is available to registered students during normal office hours (8:00-16:00) on the Bellville, Cape Town, Mowbray and Wellington campuses of our institution. Part-time students (attending evening classes) who wishes to make use of this service, are welcome to make arrangements with the administrator to see a student counsellor after hours.

This service is provided free of charge to our registered students. When you book an appointment an hour is set aside for you to discuss your personal concerns with a student counsellor (registered psychologist) or student welfare officer (registered social worker) in a safe and confidential environment

All discussions with the student counsellors, or student welfare officers will be treated with the strictest confidentiality.

  • When you have a personal, emotional, welfare or relationship problem, which negatively impacts on your studies

  • When you’ve succumbed to negative peer pressure, which negatively impacts on your academic performance
  • When you have problems with substance abuse
