Student wellbeing support

Because student life can be tough

ECC has a dedicated Student Counsellor to provide free and confidential counselling services to currently enrolled students. Especially during COVID-19, you may experience stress and challenges when studying virtually.

Our Student Counsellor can:

  • Give you individual support
  • Act as an advocate
  • Assist in the event of a personal crisis or emergency.

If you need specialised support or treatment, the Student Counsellor will provide guidance and/or referral letters. The Student Counsellor is willing and able to discuss any topic including:

  • Difficulties with studying, worrying about achievement, doing presentations and exams
  • Finding study, life and work balance
  • Death of a family member, close friend or fellow student
  • Homesickness and difficulties in adjusting to life in Australia
  • Issues around identity or sexuality
  • Relationship problems
  • Sexual assault
  • Sexual health, pregnancy or contraception
  • Stress, anxiety or depression
  • Thoughts about self-harm or suicide
  • Time management

Make one-on-one appointments by emailing Amber Roche at .

If you just need a space to de-stress and unwind, ECU has a Zen space on campus for students who want to relax between classes. This initiative is made possible through the support of Lotterywest, the WA Government and StudyPerth.
