Under normal operating circumstances, we offer the following (but please do contact us by phone/email if you have any questions): 

For Students

The Student Counselling Service offers a variety of resources to support students during their time at the University. 

The Service offers opportunities to talk through personal and troubling issues in a safe environment with a professional, trained staff.  

We aim to respond to all emails within 2-3 days.

For all emergencies, please refer to our list of emergency contacts or visit your GP.

It is NOT our role to provide the following.  Please contact the Disability Service / Mental Health Advisers if you want:-

  • Help to put a learning support plan in place.
  • Advice on strategies to overcome barriers you face.
  • Information on or help to apply for Disabled Students’ Allowances.

For Staff

The Counselling Service offers consultation to staff who are concerned about a student’s mental health via the duty counsellor system.  However, the Counselling Service is not an emergency service.

The Service can offer training and support to relevant staff to develop their understanding of mental health issues and their responses to students with difficulties.

The University Student Counselling Service is a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and as such adheres to their policies on confidentiality and data protection.
