During your time at College, you may find that you need some extra support. Counselling gives you the opportunity to talk through any worries you may have, related to College or not, with a trained counsellor.

The College provides a free, voluntary and confidential counselling service, which is open to all students from Monday to Friday, during term time.

We offer one-to-one counselling, support groups and workshops.  Students can either book an appointment, or attend a drop-in session. You can discuss with us how many sessions might be useful and which kind of support will be best at your first drop-in session. Counsellors can then organise for you to have regular appointments, which last 50 minutes.

The quickest and easiest way to get an appointment is to come to a drop-in session from Monday to Friday, 9:00am - 9:30am and 12:30pm -1pm.

Our student counselling service is based in Student Services, located in the Bagnall building. For more information on our counselling service, email .

External support services, which you might find useful, are listed here.
