Counselling services


If you are feeling low, confused or stressed, it might help to use the counselling service. You can ask to discuss anything that is troubling you, from stress at College to mental health issues and even personal relationships. This free service is open to all students and delivered in a safe and confidential environment with a qualified and impartial counsellor.

Drop-in sessions

If you want to find out more about counselling and if it is for you, then why not pop along to one of our drop-in sessions.

In this environment you can discuss what's troubling you and explore your support options.

Find out more from The Hub in Brahan.

Online sessions

Our online counselling service allows students to anonymously access counselling support directly without having to use a face-face service or speak to their PAT or Student Services.

Scheduled sessions

After you have attended a drop-in session, you may be added to the counselling waiting list for a scheduled series of appointments. You will be contacted by one of our Counsellors as soon as an appointment becomes available.

You will have between 6 to 8 sessions, each of an hour long. Within this time we will explore the problems you are experiencing, decide what you want to get from the sessions, help you answer your own questions and take better charge of your life.
