The University Counselling Service

Types of appointments:

To get the most out of your time, take a few minutes to think about:

  • What you want to focus on
  • Why now?  Has a situation changed?  New coping strategies sought?  
  • How have you been coping so far?

Counselling Consultation (CC)

A counselling consultation session lasts up to 50 minutes. The time will be used to discuss your situation in more depth to help you gain a clearer understanding of what has been happening and to think about some strategies that might help.

Your counsellor may also suggest some self-help resources, groups or workshops that are relevant to you, and provide you with information about other local services.  In some cases, however, the counsellor may suggest a follow-up appointment.

Prior to your appointment, read this document.

Missed appointments and late cancellation of appointments

We recognise that it is sometimes difficult to attend appointments at the University Counselling Service, however, we are very busy service and late cancellations and missed appointments cannot be offered to other students and staff who are waiting.  Our full policy can be found here.
