Alternatives for counselling

Due to counselling service onsite only being a day and a half a week and demand high, here are some other options to access.

  • Primary Health Organisations – check with your GP whether you are eligible for counselling through the PHO. Usually you can access free counselling for up to 6 sessions.
     
  • MPS – Medical Protection Society – if you are a member (free membership for medical students) you can access free counselling with a psychologist. Other health professionals are eligible if they are members - www.medicalprotection.org /newzealand/counselling-service
     
  • International Students - private counselling can be accessed via your health insurance. Contact Joanna MacDonald for details - email joanna.macdonald@otago.ac.nz.
