What you can expect from us
An intake appointment lasts 50 minutes and is an opportunity to decide whether counselling at the University is appropriate for you.
We offer short term counselling of up to 6 sessions, which provides an opportunity for you to explore and make sense of your thoughts, feelings and behaviours.
If you need more specialised help your counsellor will identify the appropriate place and discuss this with you. The service offers a free confidential and non-judgemental service to all students. An exception to confidentiality is if, in extreme circumstances and in the professional opinion of the counsellors, serious harm may come to your and/or other persons(s) involved with you. In such a situation your permission would usually be sought before telling anyone else.
What we expect from you
Please arrive on time for appointments.
If you are unable to keep an appointment we would appreciate notice of cancellation, simply telephone the Student Information Desk on 01604 892833. This means that the session could be made available to another student, especially at our busiest times.
The Intake paperwork must be completed and brought with you to your appointment.
