CIT students can access a free and confidential counselling service. Our counsellors specialise in helping to enhance your study skills, reduce exam anxiety, set goals and deal with any personal problems that may be affecting your study.
CIT Counsellors try to help students in distress, but this is not a crisis service and counsellors are not always immediately available. You usually need to book an appointment to consult a counsellor.
If you require urgent assistance you should phone Lifeline on 131 114 or the Mental Health ACT Crisis Assessment and Treatment Team (CATT) on 1800 629 354.
CIT counsellors are either Registered Psychologists and work within the Code of Conduct of the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (Psychology Board of Australia) or social workers that work under the Australian Association of Social Workers’ regulations. A copy of either regulation is available on request.
Counselling sessions and client files are confidential. No information about you, including the fact you have visited a counsellor, will be released to anyone outside the Counselling Office without your permission. However, ethically and legally there are circumstances where counsellors may be required to disclose information about their clients. This may be where we believe disclosing information is needed to protect our client or another person from potential danger, if the law mandatorily requires us to report information provided by a client, or if they are subpoenaed by a court or other legal entity to provide client information.
