Counselling Service for St. Angela's College Students

College life can present challenges to students, which may give rise to uncertainties and difficulties at times. Work-related stress, study and exam anxieties, peer pressures, sexual conflicts, loneliness and questions of personal worth are among issues commonly experienced during college years. Counselling aims to help a student deal with the emotional impact of issues and find a positive way forward.
The Counselling Service is absolutely confidential. St. Angela’s College subsidises this service. The first 6 sessions are free of charge, then a minimal €10 charge per session applies.

Contact the Counsellor on 087 6609209 or email counsellor@stangelas.nuigalway.ie to request an appointment.
Appointments are offered online or in the Counselling room on campus as appropriate.
