"No matter how hard the past, you can always begin again" - Buddha
What is counselling and how does it work?
Counselling provides you with a safe space to talk. In addition to all Mental Health Issues you may be experiencing, you can talk about any personal problems or academic concerns that may be troubling you, in a private and confidential atmosphere.
What does the counsellor do?
First and foremost, your counsellor will listen to you. The SCS offers a non judgemental and confidential service to all registered DIT students.
How frequent are the sessions and how long does it take?
The counsellor will contract with you for up to six sessions either once a week or once a fortnight, depending on your needs and the waiting list of the service.
The number of sessions required for you to feel a positive effect varies. Many students feel much better after only one or two sessions of counselling. However, some students wish to come to counselling for longer than that. If a student requires long term therapy, their counsellor will give them names and numbers of external therapists/ agencies available in Dublin.
