Request an appointment

We provide free and confidential short-term and specialist counselling to currently enrolled La Trobe University students. You can choose to participate in counselling in person or remotely via telephone or Zoom.

What happens when you submit a referral?

All requests for support are managed to identify the appropriate pathway for your referral. On occasions where further information is required, you may be contacted requesting clarification to ensure that your referral is directed to the best suited Health, Wellbeing and Inclusion service. We are unable to provide supporting documents during this first contact.

If you are currently seeing a La Trobe counsellor or have done so in the last six months you can book an appointment by calling 9479 2956 or email

Demand for appointments can be high therefore you may be placed on a waiting list for an appointment.

Have a look at our Health and Wellbeing resource page for some suggestions on what to do while waiting for your appointment.
