Why is student counselling important?
Through proper guidance, students make better choices in life as well as get mentally prepared for the future. The students can also talk about their confusion, vulnerable moments, personal challenges, and more with the counsellors. For anyone who would like to improve their personal development skills, this provides them with the opportunity to seek guidance on how to reach their highest potential.
How does counselling work?
Once you are allocated your counsellor, the session will be conducted virtually. Counsellors will request you to stay in an area with no disturbance and a good internet connection - and if comfortable, ask you to turn on your video. In the first session you are usually asked to share your background and talk about your state of wellbeing. You will then both will sit together to work on building a better version of yourself through mutual respect and cooperation.
Will my counsellor share my information?
Client confidentiality is the counsellor’s priority. Any information shared with a counsellor is kept with the utmost confidentiality. The counsellor will only disclose information to the College / guardians / law enforcement agency if the client is believed to be at harm to themselves or others.
I am not a student but can I book a counselling appointment?
Yes, all TBC members are entitled to seek support with the Students Counselling and Wellbeing Unit. This includes students, teachers, and non-teaching staff.
How long is a counselling session?
Each counselling session is between 45 and 60 minutes long.
How can I prepare for counselling?
Your initial session will be an opportunity for you to tell your counsellor why you have referred yourself for counselling. It is okay if you do not know what your challenge is at this point, but you may want to think about any questions you may have for the counsellor at this stage.
What issues can I share at counselling?
You may speak regarding any issues concerning you - whether they are personal or professional - during your counselling session. Problems may include anxiety, depression, stress management, trauma healing, anger management, overthinking, time management, building confidence, study tips, or conflict resolving - but are by no means restricted to this list.
