Through dealing with the above-mentioned difficulties, we aim to restore and enhance students' academic experience. 

How can you get help?

To make an appointment please do not hesitate to contact the CSSS reception at 021 959 2299.

You can also find us on the 2nd floor of the CHS building.

We will do our best to accommodate you and your academic calendar. 

If you are unable to do so and still need some help, please make use of the UWC helpline​.

What do we expect from you?

At Therapeutic Services, we hope to provide our students with the best therapeutic encounter. To ensure this, we hope that you will make the following considerations:

Please note: 

If you arrive 15 minutes late for the session, it will automatically be rescheduled/cancelled. 

Should you not arrive for a session and have not communicated, unfortunately the slot will be lost.

If you reschedule twice consecutively, unfortunately the slot will be lost. 

However, at Therapeutic services we are aware of your different contexts and the nature thereof. As such we ask that you communicate with us so that we can take your context into consideration and accommodate you as best we can.
