Welcome to the Student Counselling Service.

Opening Hours:  Monday to Friday:  9am – 4pm


Here at I.T. Sligo, the Student Counselling Service aims to provide a confidential support service that is free of charge to all registered I.T. Sligo students.

The service offers students the opportunity to explore any issue which may be impacting on their mental health and general well-being in a confidential setting.


Confidentiality

Be assured that confidentiality is a central and integral part of the counselling process. It offers safety and privacy to students who choose to discuss personal and private concerns, and it safeguards against any inappropriate or unnecessary disclosures.

All information given by you to your counsellor is confidential and won’t be disclosed to anyone outside of the Student Counselling Service. The only exception is if your counsellor is concerned about immediate risk to you or a third party.


Making an Appointment/Referral

The Counselling Service operates on an appointment basis. If you would like to make an appointment , please contact:

  • Provide accurate information on how to access the Service
