Student counselling

The University Counselling Service offers free, confidential support to students' registered at The University of Nottingham.

Our professionally qualified counsellors can offer help with personal and psychological problems.

You can contact us to arrange a counselling consultation yourself - you don't have to be referred by your tutor or GP.

What to expect from your counselling consultation

Your consultation will last between 30 and 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.

Many people find that a single counselling consultation will give them the support and insight they need to get on with their lives without further help. in some cases, however, the counsellor may suggest a follow-up appointment.

Before attending your counselling consultation, read this leaflet.

Missed appointments and late cancellations 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.
