During your time at College, you may find that you need some extra support. 

We offer all students the opportunity to access a free and confidential counselling service.  You refer yourself in person via drop in sessions.  These run Monday to Friday, 9:00am-9:30am and 12:30pm-1:00pm.  Our student counselling service is based in Student Services, located in the Bagnall building.

Counselling is a space where you can discuss, in confidence and without judgement, what is causing you concern with a trained professional.  At your first appointment, you and the counsellor will discuss how the counselling process works and how it can support you.  We also offer one to one Wellbeing Coaching appointments to support common mental health issues, such as anxiety and stress.

The College's counselling provision is a professional service and all the counsellors abide by a code of ethical practice.  You can read more about this in the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy Ethical Framework for Good Practice here
