Make An Appointment

The Wellness Centre is committed to helping students secure a counselling appointment at the soonest available opportunity. For urgent appointments, please inform our staff so that arrangements for immediate care can be organised.

What to expect during counselling

Counselling services are provided free to all SMU students, and all appointments at the Wellness Centre are kept confidential. Our counsellors are trained to listen without judgement as they work with you to understand the cause of your problems, explore solutions and coping methods and refer additional resource. Some common student concerns include:

  • Meeting expectations on school results
  • Adapting and coping with university life
  • Loneliness, anxiety, stress and depression
  • Socialisation, relationship or family issues
  • Feelings of negativity and suicidal tendencies
  • Substance addiction or abuse
  • Support in helping others
