Counselling Service

Psychological Wellbeing

Our Psychological Wellbeing service offers advice, guidance and self-help resources for you to develop the skills to help you to manage your own wellbeing. We find that many students are looking for rapid access to resources to feel better in the short-term. Counselling sessions may be appropriate when you are ready to commit time to develop insight into longer-term difficulties or recognised patterns of thoughts and feelings that you would like to change.

It is the role of our Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner (PWP) to help you identify the resources most appropriate to your need, and to keep in touch to monitor your progress and wellbeing.

When we receive your Self-Referral Questionnaire you will receive an email offering a range of appropriate interventions. This will include an invitation to a Drop-in session at which you can view resources and talk to our PWP. You can also arrange an individual session with the PWP to discuss your needs in more detail.

Workshops and Groups

The full list of our workshops and group events is at the Workshop and Groups Section.
