Counselling & Personal Development

Staff at Support@WAI provide you, as a student, with short term, FREE and confidential counselling to discuss any issues which may be affecting your ability to study.

A counsellor is a trained professional who can help you work through and solve your problems.These problems may be connected to personal, study, work, friendship or family issues.

The counsellor does this by having a conversation with you to help you clarify these issues, explore the options and develop solution-focused strategies.

Making your first contact may be a challenge but the counsellor is there to help you feel comfortable enough to speak about your issues. In this way, you will have an understanding of yourself while being offered techniques to help you become clear and decisive.

Counselling may cover financial, vocational and educational issues, as well as referrals to external agencies, giving information on legal rights and responsibilities, accommodation and related matters.

The counsellor may also offer individual coaching/mentoring sessions to students based on positive psychology principles of resilience, motivation and personal development.

  • Personal counselling for stress, anxiety, depression, relationship concerns, adjustment/transition, study issues and other areas of concern to you
