Learn more about counselling and how to make an appointment.
You can contact us for an appointment yourself. You don't have to be referred by your tutor or GP. Please contact us by email, by phone, or call into the Service.
If you are worried about a friend, one of the counsellors can talk with you about the situation. You can book an advisory appointment or speak to someone on the telephone. This could be to support you and perhaps suggest where your friend may best obtain help.

NOTE: The Counselling Service may not be willing to provide evidence if a student has no engagement with the Service prior to their claim. Students requesting extenuating circumstances evidence will be required to complete a extenuating circumstances letter request form in advance of an appointment being made. The University's Quality Manual guidance on Extenuating Circumstances (4.1.1) states that Schools may accept evidence provided by the student's personal tutor, Student Support Officer, Examinations' Officer or School Manager.
