Counselling Services

Counselling services are available to all in the UCU community through the Counselling Services Department. Individual and family counselling is available for students and staff members. The Counselling services department also trains dozens of staff and students each semester to be para-counsellors; carrying out special workshops for singles, married couples as well as parents.

Going to university is for many the beginning of a career path to new dreams and hopes. And that is why the University Counselling Service is there for you; to walk with you. It is not about problems. It is about life; about you.


The office also trains several peer counsellors every year to meet the growing need for counselling support. These are students who live in the halls of residence both on and off campus. They are available and easily accessible by the student body most of the day.
