Completing this online questionnaire is your first step in the process of self-referral to the Counselling Service, and is also a way of exploring your current concerns in preparation for counselling.
Your responses to the questions will help you and the counsellor prepare for counselling and ensure it is most helpful for you.
Once submitted, your completed documentation will be processed by our Counselling Team. Our receptionist will then contact you within three days and invite you to attend a counselling appointment with a member of the Counselling Team. If you need to see someone in an emergency please tell the person making the appointment. (An emergency would include you feeling that you are at risk of hurting yourself or someone else, feeling desperate for help, or too overwhelmed to cope with things).
If you strongly object to or are struggling to complete the questionnaire online please phone 04 9793030 to speak to our receptionist or visit the Student Health and Counselling Centre on Level 3 of the Student Services building. A paper copy of the questionnaire is available.
Please be aware our opening hours are 8:30am - 4:30pm Mon - Fri. For mental health emergencies and/or after-hours help contact: phone the Mental Health Call Centre, Te Haika, on 0800 745 477, or dial 111.
We encourage you to use your usual supports and self-care strategies while waiting for your appointment. Find out about strategies to help you manage difficult times in the self-help resources section.
