UniSA’s Counselling Service offers free and confidential short-term counselling to students studying onshore in Australia to help with managing any personal issues that could affect your studies.

Our Counsellors are highly qualified and have extensive experience working with university students. They will listen to your concerns without judgement and work with you, exploring options and solutions that suit your needs.

Counsellors assist students with a wide range of issues including:

  • assisting with personal issues affecting your studies
  • adjusting to change (new culture, university, city, academic expectations)
  • managing stress, anxiety and depression
  • learning about motivation, time management and exam stress
  • offering support following a crisis or trauma
  • dealing with sexual harassment or assault
  • managing a personal or family crisis

Counsellors also run personal wellbeing workshops on campus and provide a range of online self-help resources. We encourage you to make use of our services and resources.




Learn how to manage the stresses of daily life through our workshops and mindfulness sessions.
