Counselling services


If you are feeling low, confused or stressed, you might find counselling helpful. Together with an experienced counsellor, you’ll have the opportunity to discuss anything that is troubling you, from academic worries to mental health issues and personal relationship problems. This free service is open to all students and delivered in a safe and confidential environment with a qualified and impartial counsellor.


Due to the Covid-19 lockdown restrictions the counselling team are working online.  To make contact please email or contact the counsellors directly using the email addresses below.


Scheduled sessions

We will contact you to offer you an initial meeting to see if counselling is suitable for you. If it is, you will be offered up to 6 sessions, each 50 minutes long. Within this time we will explore the problems you are experiencing, decide what you want to get from the sessions, and help you find the way forward you want for yourself.

Online sessions

The University of the Highlands and Islands also offers an online counselling service, find out more about this service here.
