Health and wellbeing

When you study at CHC, we want you to thrive in every aspect of your life, not just your studies. We’re committed to nurturing your academic, professional, emotional and spiritual growth.

We understand life doesn’t always go to plan. If you’re facing unexpected circumstances, we’ll work with you and liaise with staff to determine the best way to move forward. You can be confident bringing your concerns to us, knowing we’ll do whatever we can to help.

Counselling centre

CHC houses its own counselling and support centre where anyone in the community can access high-quality counselling services. We believe everyone can benefit from counselling. While our trained counsellors can help with specific life issues, they can also help you thrive in life by identifying what you want and discovering a path to get you there. It’s a safe, judgement-free space where you’ll be valued and cared for.

Current CHC students can access these services for free and be counselled by our student counsellors. Having completed the majority of their course work, our student counsellors are thoroughly trained in a variety of counselling therapies and techniques. They are mentored by academic staff and closely supervised by registered counsellors, so you only receive the highest-quality care.

You don’t need a referral, but all of our sessions are by appointment only. We can organise after-hours sessions under special circumstances.
