Indigenous counselling

We provide a specific and culturally-sensitive support program for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

Specialised support

The Counselling team work closely with La Trobe's Indigenous Student Services team to support Indigenous students throughout their time at La Trobe.

The counsellor is located on the Melbourne Campus, and also travels to regional campuses. Support can also be provided via phone.

How a counsellor can help

The counsellor can assist you with:

  • support for your study
  • referral to other appropriate agencies
  • general psychological support as well as help with relationships, personal issues and a range of other practical supports.
