The Advice and Counselling Service is available and offering an adapted service during coronavirus.
Please contact us if you would like to book an appointment with a counsellor.
Counsellors are currently offering online appointments via MS Teams, support phone calls on Teams, and some face-to-face appointments (with masks) as necessary.
If you don’t have a confidential space, you can use one of our zoom-rooms at ACS, a private room for video-counselling. Please request this when you contact us.
If you are currently living outside the UK, we are offering wellbeing checks and shorter support calls via MS Teams. You will need to provide an emergency contact within your country.
Registering for counselling
You will need to complete our webform and then we’ll email you a link to our Registration Form in MySiS. Once we have your form, we’ll contact you with a suitable vacancy depending on your availability.
Once you are offered an initial consultation, please confirm within the period specified, as unconfirmed appointments may be offered to another student.
We would also recommend making an appointment with your GP if you are feeling psychologically unwell, so that your GP can support you and, if necessary, assist with specialist referral within the NHS.
Remember, our Welfare Advice service is for practical issues such as immigration, funding, fees. Contact our Frontline Team to book to see an adviser.
For academic support with your studies or Extenuating Circumstances, contact your Student Support Officer (SSO) in your department.
If you’re still unsure, our Counselling FAQs can help you decide.
