Targeted Groups

Is there a group you have been wishing was available? Perhaps we can help.

In the past the Counselling Services has responded to requests from academic staff and groups of students for a program tailored to their needs.

Examples include:

  • Preparation for placement  
  • Improving skills in communication, time management and/or organisation. 

Contact us by phone, email or in person to discuss your custom made group needs. 


Campus specific group sessions

LGBTIQ Social Support Group - Rainbow Eagles

Rainbow Eagles is a student led club under the Bendigo Student Association, that is supported by the counselling service. Rainbow Eagles was created to support LGBTIQ+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans*, Intersex, Queer/Questioning, and any other definitions not mentioned that pertain to non-heterosexual, and/or non-cisgender people) students on campus, and to challenge homophobia, biphobia and transphobia. It is a great place for students to be around other LGBTIQ+ people, and get support before, or while coming out. Rainbow Eagles also run social events on and off campus. La Trobe's Queer Counsellor, Lachlan Slade, supports the club which runs every Thursday during semester time, 3.00-4.00pm in the BSA boardroom.

Other group sessions with upcoming dates will be featured on the website in 2017.
