Our qualified and experienced counsellors/therapists are here to support all University students as part of the Student Wellbeing Service. 

Some of the most common issues which students come for help with are low mood, anxiety, and relationship problems. Many students benefit from exploring their emotions, thoughts, and behaviours in the confidential counselling setting.
