Welcome to the Student Counselling and Mental Health Advice Service
We are now offering in-person sessions
The Student Counselling & Mental Health Advice Service are now offering in-person sessions, whilst also continuing to provide access to our services via online digital platforms. You will now be able to indicate whether you would prefer in-person or remote support when signing up to the Service. If you are an ongoing user of the service, you can discuss with your Counsellor, Mental Health Adviser or Study Mentor whether a return to in-person sessions can be conducted for you.
While we will endeavour to see all students in person as quickly as possible, we will be running a reduced service due to COVID-19, so the number of in-person sessions will be limited compared to remote sessions, and you may face a longer wait to be seen in person than remotely. Please note that the Service may alter the availability of the in-person service based on changes to Government guidelines and Public Health recommendations.
You can also contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. Emails are being monitored Mon-Fri within the hours of 9:00 until 17:00 except during bank holidays and college closure dates. We have lots of other sources of help and support in the boxes below that you may find useful.

University Mental Health Day 2021
BACE is a behavioural activation technique based on the evidence that we feel better when we do activities that look after our Bodies, provide us with a sense of Achievement, that brings Connection or Closeness to others or activities which we Enjoy and bring us pleasure (BACE). If we can look after the 'BACE-ics', we'll be looking after our mental health and wellbeing.
