What to Expect From Counselling

Counsellors at UniSA:

  • listen to you and treat you with respect
  • work with you to help resolve any problems that are impacting your wellbeing or study
  • assist you in developing skills to help with your studies (for example, ways to manage exam anxiety)
  • explore options for extensions or secondary assessments when you experience circumstances beyond your control that impact your study
  • Refer you to appropriate services when specialised or ongoing counselling is required.
