Welcome to the Counselling Unit

The Counselling Unit (CU) is within the Division of Student Services and the Registry. Counselling services provide short-term/brief supportive individual psychotherapy free of charge to all students, staff and alumnus. Students who enrol in the University of Technology, Jamaica (UTech, Ja) are not only intellectual, but also social and emotional beings. The backgrounds of UTech, Ja students are as varied as the courses offered by each faculty and college. These dimensions interact and impact learning and performance.

Despite a student's prior knowledge, intellectual development, cultural background, and generational experiences, the CU is positioned to facilitate the total development of students by reducing psychological problems and distress, and enhance mental health, well-being, and overall quality of life. Helping students succeed academically and interpersonally is our imperative.
