Make an appointment

The University of Canberra Counselling clinic is a student-led counselling service providing low cost, professional and confidential counselling to students and the wider community. Our counsellors are post-graduate counselling students with hands-on clinical experience in counselling and are closely supervised by qualified counsellors. Our counsellors utilise a wide range of interventions and strategies to work with their clients to overcome current problems, crises and long-term challenges.

How can talking to a counsellor help you?

  • A counsellor can give you support so you can tackle difficult problems and issues and find ways to solve or come to peace with them.
  • A counsellor can help keep small problems from becoming big problems.
  • A counsellor can provide you with greater perspective, so you can see the “big picture.”
  • A counsellor can help you get out of “auto-pilot” and puts you back in control of your life.
  • Counselling helps restore and engage your natural strengths and abilities.
  • A counsellor can provide you with the tools and strategies to approach problems with confidence and clarity.
  • A counsellor can bring you back to a natural state of wellness and wholeness so that you can thrive – whatever your circumstances.

The counselling services provided by the clinic are student-led at a minimal cost to you: $30 per hour for concessions and students and $40 for non-concessions.

Please note, as services are provided by students under supervision, no rebate is available through private health funds, Medicare or third-party providers.


In response to the situation with COVID-19, we are offering telehealth services. Please call us to make an appointment.

Depending on your required service we operate out of two locations on the UC Campus in Bruce.
