Nessa and Bríd are here to listen. The counselling service provides all students with the opportunity to talk in a relaxed, comfortable and confidential setting. (Please note that the counselling service only operates during semester times ie: weeks 1-15 in both Semester 1 & 2)
Due to COVID-19, the counselling service will operate on a blended model for delivery to students in Semester 1;
• Initial drop-in meeting on campus with on-duty counsellor/counsellors, for screening and/or to set up an individual plan for face to face /online counselling support
• Alternatively, if your initial point of contact is via email to the generic counselling address This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., a counsellor will assess your needs & counsellor availability, and make an individual
support plan for you, accordingly
• Non face to face counselling will be offered via Zoom or other online platform; also by telephone counselling as per individual agreement between counsellor & student.
