Student-led Counselling Service for UQ students

19 August 2022

UQ Counsellor Connect is a student-led counselling service that is run by final-year Master of Counselling students.

As students, we have first-hand insight into the struggles of balancing study, life and other commitments. And we know it can be hard at times! 

Our service is confidential and provided at no cost. We follow the reflector model of counselling. You will be assisted by two counsellors- one lead counsellor and one reflector. Both professionals work together to provide the best care for you. The reflector will observe the session and then be invited to offer insights to you. The idea of a reflector is to open up different perspectives and possibilities. If you have further questions about this process please do not hesitate to ask your counsellor about it in the first session.
