'Counselling and psychotherapy are umbrella terms that cover a range of talking therapies. They are delivered by trained practitioners who work with people over a short or long term to help them bring about effective change or enhance their wellbeing.' (British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy)
The Student Counsellors/Therapists within the Wellbeing Team provide short term counselling (usually a maximum of 6 sessions).
In addition to individual counselling, the counselling service also offers group therapy in the Student Support Group. The group therapy we offer is suitable for those experiencing mild to moderate low mood and/or anxiety. The Student Support group is a confidential therapy group facilitated by qualified counsellors from the Student Wellbeing Team. It offers a supportive environment where you can explore what’s troubling you and both share and learn coping strategies. To download the Student Support Group information sheet Click Here.
