Supporting your therapeutic journey

Outside of Ikon we strongly recommend that you participate in therapy sessions of your own.

The benefits of this include:

  • Familiarising yourself with therapeutic approaches.
  • Learning new behaviors and/or responses which can help you to achieve your goals (which can support the kind of life you would like to have).
  • Understanding your own thoughts, feelings and responses better.
  • Developing skills and understanding for improving relationships.
  • Working towards greater self-understanding and fulfillment.

Student Support Services

The Ikon Institute of Australia is committed to providing a supportive and positive environment for all members of its community and beyond. This extends to providing student support throughout the entirety of a students’ journey with us, through the provision of the following services:

Orientation and Transition Support

All students are expected to attend the Ikon Institute’s orientation program in their first week.  The orientation program involves familiarisation with the campus, facilities and study skills.

Student Handbook

All students are provided with a copy of the Student Handbook during their induction at Ikon Institute. The handbook contains information on services, facilities and resources available to students, contact details for key members of staff at the Ikon Institute and other relevant information in assisting students with their studies.

Student Experience Team

The Ikon Institute has a Student Experience Team who provide assistance to students throughout their time studying with Ikon and beyond. The Student Experience Team will help students through their enrolment process; timetabling; orientation; learning management system; graduation and every other aspect of daily student life. Students are also free to approach any Ikon Institute staff member for help or to make general enquires.

Additional Information

You may also find the following information useful;


All Ikon students have access to private sessions with Counsellors, who are trained in therapeutic practice. Personal development is an integral part of Ikon programs, and this aspect can be occasionally unsettling for some students, or give rise to a certain degree of emotional upheaval.
Sessions with appropriate practitioners can be booked online above.

Study Skills Handbook

The Study Skills Handbook has been developed for students in establishing good study practices from the onset of your learning at Ikon and to ensure that you are aware of the expectations when it comes to the more formal part of your learning and assessments.­
