Counselling at Tallaght

Like everyone else, students can experience problems which they find difficult to resolve by themselves. Settling/resettling into college, personal relationships, family issues, bereavement, low mood, shyness, academic pressures etc. may worry you.

It can be very helpful to deal with these issues before they become so big that they can affect your college life. It is also important to seek help in time. To help you the university provides a confidential Student Counselling Service.

Student Counselling Service
Is a professional, confidential and free service. The Service offers individual counselling. Individual counselling provides a safe and supportive environment where you can come and talk about any issue that is bothering you. There is plenty of information available from the counsellor on topics such as: assertiveness, self-esteem, relationship worries, low mood, anxiety and stress management.

How do I make an appointment?
If you have any questions about appointments or any general queries, you can contact the counselling service.
