Due to the coronavirus pandemic, we have moved to an online-based support session system for any current student contacting us.
We offer bookable online support sessions of about 10-20 minutes with either the duty counsellor, or with one of the counselling team if you already have contact with them.
These support sessions are to offer help, support and information, and they will not be formal counselling or therapy but are one to one sessions. We will, as before, make brief notes of the contact we have with you, and store this data in the usual way through our secure Counselling Service database. This means that any counsellor will be able to see these notes if need be, for example, if you have another support session.
They are available Monday - Friday during normal office hours, and they are only bookable on the day you want the appointment (we do not pre-book).
To book a session, please email us at the usual address email@example.com and we will do our best to arrange a time for you.
In preparation for any online session, you will need to download Microsoft Teams as this is how we will contact you. Please note that whilst we do our best to ensure that our online routes are secure, we cannot guarantee the security of these.
You can access all our online resources on our webpages. We have some additional pages too, about other external sources of help that you may find useful. /studentservices/onlinementalhealthresources.php.en
Please note that we are not an Emergency Service. If your situation is urgent, then you should contact your GP or, if out of hours, the A&E department of the local hospital.
