Our Psychologists at Bond University provide free, confidential counselling service to help you with anything from academic, study pressures through to personal problems.
If you are struggling with a lack of motivation, harassment, depression or are dealing with a severe trauma, you may find that one-on-one sessions with our counsellors will give you the skills to cope. They have excellent contacts with the wider healthcare community and can arrange specialist, professional assistance off campus if required.
The number of sessions will be worked out between you and your counsellor. Usually counselling is short-term. However, clients may be referred to appropriate practitioners off-campus if long-term or specialised services are required.
Counselling is available to only students and staff of Bond University. If you have an issue that involves your partner or someone else in your family, it is sometimes appropriate to involve that person in joint counselling sessions.
Psychologists appointments can be made on the hour for 1 hour.
If you are unable to make your appointment please ring to cancel or reschedule for another appointment time, so we can offer the appointment to someone in need.
If you have a disability issue, then students should feel free to discuss this with the Disability Officer.
Our counselling team can also act on your behalf, speaking to the Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Student and Academic Support), academic staff, program advisors or even your parents. In the case of illness or some other serious issue, they can advocate you if you need special consideration regarding assignments, exams, presentations, etc.
Medical, Psychological and Disability Services is located within the Student & Staff Medical Clinic (See location 9 on the Campus Map).

Demand for Counselling support on campus is high. We make every effort to make appointments, but there may be times when we are unavailable for immediate appointments due to Semester demands.
