Student Counselling Service

In collaboration with Vitae, we provide all students with access to individual counselling services and trauma support. You can access independent counsellors and psychologists, who are based throughout New Zealand.

This service is available 24 hours, 7 days a week through Vitae.
Contact Vitae on free phone 0508 664 981 or fill out the online self-referral form.

To find out more, if you feel comfortable, have a chat with your tutor, mentor, or learning support tutor, as they can also help you access Vitae’s services.

You should be able to make an appointment within 2-3 working days. Urgent appointments can also be made. 

Confidential

The counselling service is totally confidential. For identification purposes only, you will need to provide your WelTec ID number and the name of the programme you are enrolled in. Anything you discuss with your counsellor is confidential; no one else receives any details about your discussions without your permission.

Free 

The first three sessions are free. Please note, if you cancel an appointment without giving 24 hours notice, you may be charged 50% of the normal counselling fee.
