'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).
