Counselling Service

The Counselling Service continues to offer a full service. All sessions are currently being delivered remotely – wherever you are in the world. We offer advisory sessions on psyhological wellbeing, counselling and mental health via the Microsoft Teams App (in Apps Anywhere), or via Zoom/Skype or telephone. We are only able to call UK-based telephone numbers. To self-refer please email:

You can self-refer to the Service any time. You will be emailed a link to two online forms which we ask you to complete and return. After your forms have been confidentially triaged by our senior team, you will receive another link enabling you to book an appointment online, with an appropriate practitioner. If you do book a session but need to cancel, it is really helpful if you let us know so that we can offer the slot to another person.
