Individual counselling and therapy

Online counselling support is available to all students. Request a counselling session by sending an email to: student-counselling@cput.ac.za. You will be contacted during working hours, to arrange an online counselling session at a time that is convenient for you. Include your name, surname, student number and course information when you send us an email.

Counselling support is available to students during working hours (8:00-16:00) on the Bellville, Cape Town, Mowbray and Wellington campuses of our institution. During COVID-19, it is recommended that students contact Student Counselling via the counselling line first to arrange to request counselling. From there the counsellor will make arrangements with you to determine how counselling will proceed.

This service is provided free of charge to our registered students. When you book an appointment an hour is set aside for you to discuss your personal concerns with a student counsellor (registered psychologist) or student welfare officer (registered social worker) in a safe and confidential environment

All discussions with the student counsellors, or student welfare officers will be treated with the strictest confidentiality.
