How to book an appointment with a counsellor

How to make an appointment 

You will need to complete a registration form, which only takes a few minutes, and then we can make an appointment for you.  While we are under Covid-19 restrictions all appointments are offering on a digital platform rather than face-to-face sessions.

A counselling session usually lasts 45-50 minutes.  You may find one session is sufficient for your needs, or you might decide to attend further appointments.  We mostly offer short-term counselling and most students we see attend three sessions on average.

If a year of your studies takes place abroad or if you're not able to physically come in to see us, you can contact us for counselling support over email, MS Teams or Skype. To arrange this, please email the Counselling team.
