Student Counselling Service
A confidential service free to all City students
Over the years, many City students have found that the Counselling Service is a safe place to talk and think about matters that are troubling or distressing them. The members of our team have considerable experience of working with City students. We understand that undertaking a degree or training can be a momentous and challenging process, no matter what stage in ones life. In addition, many students have travelled great distances from their home to attend City, sometimes leaving behind complex or painful family issues. Relationships with other people, personal as well as academic, can add to the challenges of studying.
We make it as easy as possible for students to have an Initial Consultation with a team member. This is a brief session of up to 20 minutes, to establish what has brought you to see us and to think about how we may help.
Initial consultations run on a first come, first served basis, Monday to Friday, 1-2pm in the Student Counselling & Mental Health Service. You will be asked to complete a short online registration form before meeting with a member of our team (please see below). This can be completed at home or in the service. We encourage you to complete this in advance where possible.
If you are unable to attend the initial consultation between 1-2pm, it may be possible to book an initial consultation at a time that is more convenient for you however, there may be a delay before the next available appointment. For further information please contact our service front desk.
