Counselling Services at GMIT

A professional, confidential, and free service available to all students at GMIT

GMIT Counselling

The Counselling Services at GMIT offer a safe, open and non-judgemental place to discuss whatever your concerns are.

Talking it over with a trained professional can sometimes help students to see things more clearly, make choices and develop more effective ways of coping.

Whatever is on your mind, we are here to listen, and help you to achieve your full potential during your time spent at GMIT.  You may wish to explore academic, personal or mental health concerns.

You can speak with a Counsellor about any issue, no matter how big or small.
