General information about making a counselling appointment

Everyone who would like to access the Counselling & Mental Health Support Service has an initial appointment to assess level of need. However, please note that our Service is not recommended for certain difficulties and for those who cannot attend face to face appointments. 

Take a look at our Eligibility Criteria for more information.

Following this initial assessment, students might be referred for further sessions, which can be either individual or group. Guided Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) or psychoeducational groups might also be suggested and we might recommend a suitable external service.

While you are waiting for the service to contact you, you can register for Togetherall, which is the university's chosen online support platform for mental health.
