Welcome to the Student Counselling and Mental Health Advice Service
We are still offering both in-person and remote appointments.
If you are in crisis or need to speak to someone urgently, please go to our other sources of support page here.
If your query is not urgent you can email us directly at email@example.com and we will respond to you as soon as possible.
The Student Counselling Service is currently running a blended service. This means that when you register you will be offered either a remote or in-person initial appointment, whichever is the first available. This will allow you to be seen by our service more quickly, after which you can discuss with your Counsellor whether you would like your ongoing sessions to be remote or in-person. If you are unable to have either a remote or in-person session please let us know when you register.
The demand for first appointments (Initial Conversations) with a student counsellor is very high. Once you have completed the Registration Form with us, your name will be on the list and we will offer you a first appointment within approximately 8-10 weeks.
In the meantime, we would encourage you to look at other sources of support e.g. NHS Psychological Therapies or IAPT (Improving Access to Psychological Therapies). You can find your local IAPT Service here.
More immediate support is also available to you via your departments Wellbeing Advisors/Welfare Officer. Find the name of your Wellbeing Advisor/Welfare Officer here
We have a large library of resources in the boxes below that you may find useful in the boxes below.

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.
