The University offers a counselling service to all students and staff. Information is on our website; please search the below FAQs if you need additional information.



The Counselling Service is available, free of charge, to all registered undergraduate and postgraduate students and to all University staff.


Counselling offers an opportunity to talk in confidence about problems or issues that concern you. It is a therapeutic approach that seeks to help you to explore and understand current difficulties, and to make choices in your life.

Some of the issues brought to the Service include anxiety, depression, family concerns, bereavement, difficulty in adjusting to a new way of life, work and study related problems, physical and/or sexual abuse, eating difficulties, self-harm and sexual problems.


Please note:  The Student Services Department has moved to supporting students online and all Service Centres have been closed until further notice.

The Counselling Service is based in The Orchards on University Park campus. We are open Monday to Friday (9.00am - 12.30pm and 2.00pm - 4.30pm). You can also contact us by telephone (0115 74 86344) or by email. Counselling appointments will be available at Jubilee, Sutton Bonington, and Derby sites as well, though these will still be booked through the team at The Orchards.


If you would like to have a meeting with a counsellor, you will need to:

  1. complete the registration form at https://www.nottingham.ac.uk/counselling/student-counselling/register-for-a-consultation.aspx
  1. arrange for an appointment by ringing 0115 74 86344 between 10am - 3pm

Appointments are booked a maximum of 2 weeks in advance.  If we are fully booked then you will need to try again the following working day.


The Counselling Service takes confidentiality very seriously. All client information is treated in confidence. This means that we do not disclose verbal or written information without your permission or consent. The only exceptions to this procedure are where there is a legal obligation to disclose (very rare) or when a member of the counselling staff believes the client or other people are at serious risk. In these circumstances the consent to pass on these concerns will be sought before information is disclosed, if at all possible.
