The Counselling and Personal Development Service is a professional, confidential and free service, which is available to all registered undergraduate and postgraduate DCU students.
The service provides one-to-one counselling and specialist input on a wide range of personal, academic, family, social, psychological and mental health issues that hinder a student’s academic performance in a non-judgmental and open manner.This includes support and help at time of immediate crisis.
The service also provides a range of on-line wellbeing, resilience and mental health advice and information including bibliotherapy which is quality self-help reading for psychological health.
