From your initial appointment with one of our Wellbeing advisers, we may refer you to University counselling. Once referred, you will be offered up to 5 counselling sessions.
Counselling is talking therapy dedicated to helping you understand and manage any problems you are experiencing. Our counselling service is available to all enrolled students, respects individuality and provides a safe, non-judgmental space for you to speak freely and openly.
Our counsellors are trained, experienced and abide by the Framework for Good Practice of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (www.bacp.co.uk). Strict confidentiality will be maintained between you and your counsellor but may be broken if required by law, if agreed between you and your counsellor or if there is a risk to yourself or another person.
If you’re interested in counselling, you may wish to mention it to your adviser within your appointment. Please refer to the section on appointments to get started.
We ask your permission to keep records of your counselling which are stored securely for a pre-agreed period in compliance with relevant data protection legislation.
