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.
The number of sessions offered will vary depending on your circumstance and will be agreed with your counsellor. Allocated sessions will be kept for you unless you miss two or more sessions without contact, when these slots will be made available to other students.
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 Services Help Desk on 01604 892833. This means that the session could be made available to another student, especially at our busiest times.
Intake Forms must be completed at the Student Centre Helpdesk before your Intake appointment.
