The Student Counselling Service offers a variety of resources to support students during their time at University, including groups and workshops for students throughout the academic year including iCan Building Resilience workshops and Mindfulness Taster sessions on Wednesday afternoons. Additionally, the Counselling team also offer the opportunity for you to talk through personal and troubling issues in a safe, confidential environment with a professional, trained counsellor.

In the first instance, the service encourages students who are seeking support to look at their Self-Help resources in the first instance – these include ‘Self-Help links, podcasts and APPS’ and ‘Information Handouts’ on a variety of topics.
