The ECU Counselling Service provides a free, confidential service to all current ECU students residing in Australia* to address any personal issues that impact on your studies. The service offers short to medium-term counselling (6-10 sessions per calendar year).
Our counsellors have backgrounds in Psychology and Mental Health Nursing, and are skilled and experienced in helping people with a wide range of personal, psychological and study-related difficulties.
Counsellors can provide you with emotional support, help you understand the problems you have and assist you to find new solutions and new ways of coping.
