CHC is about connecting with others and growing together as we honour God through community life. CHC offers various support services to help you in your academic journey. We are a vibrant community of people from all walks of life. You are encouraged to make the most of your time here and take advantage of everything our community has to offer.
We offer a range of services to make sure you get the most out of being a part of the CHC community. Study at CHC is more than classes, assessments and projects.
Here at CHC, ‘community’ is more than a word. It is the way we learn and do life together. It is the cultivation and celebration of authentic relationships in a unique Christian higher education setting. Transforming people to transform their world.
Life at CHC is about far more than just studying.
HEALTH AND WELLBEING
When you study at CHC, we want you to thrive in every aspect of your life, not just your studies.
We’re committed to nurturing your academic, professional, emotional and spiritual growth. We understand life doesn’t always go to plan. If you’re facing unexpected circumstances, we’ll work with you and liaise with staff to determine the best way to move forward. You can be confident bringing your concerns to us, knowing we’ll do whatever we can to help.
CHC houses its own counselling and support centre where anyone in the community can access high-quality counselling services. We believe everyone can benefit from counselling. While our trained counsellors can help with specific life issues, they can also help you thrive in life by identifying what you want and discovering a path to get you there. It’s a safe, judgement-free space where you’ll be valued and cared for.
Current CHC students can access these services for free and be counselled by our student counsellors. Having completed the majority of their course work, our student counsellors are thoroughly trained in a variety of counselling therapies and techniques.
They are mentored by academic staff and closely supervised by registered counsellors, so you only receive the highest-quality care. You don’t need a referral, but all of our sessions are by appointment only. We can organise after-hours sessions under special circumstances.
