What is Counselling?

Counselling offers the opportunity to explore any issues which are causing you concern or distress. These can be emotional or social, or connected to your work or studies.

Concerns can be long-standing or the result of a recent event or crisis. They may:

  • Result in uncomfortable feelings such as anxiety, depression, unhappiness or fear
  • Cause stress, perhaps disrupting normal eating or sleeping patterns
  • Prevent full participation in University life

Counselling can create time and space to explore these issues in a confidential setting with a trained Counsellor who is not directly involved. This may provide a chance to find a new perspective on the problem and often to become more accepting of yourself in the process.

The University Counselling Service provides ‘short-term’ counselling to current students. This can be discussed with your Counsellor.
