When should you consult the confidential advisor?
Contact a confidential advisor if you have been exposed to undesirable behaviour or if you suspect that you are being subjected to undesirable behaviour online or offline. Examples of undesirable forms of behaviour are:
- Sexual intimidation
The definition of ‘undesirable’ is subjective. What is undesirable for one person may not be so for another. The situation will only become a problem when you cannot work it out together.

What does the counselling entail?
The confidential advisor offers a sympathetic ear and is independent. The confidential advisor will take a constructive approach and will help you to find a solution that will put an end to the undesirable behaviour. One of the ways in which a confidential advisor can help is to initiate a discussion with the perpetrator. However, at your request, the confidential advisor can also engage a mediator for you or help you to lodge a complaint with the independent Complaints Committee.
