Why make an appointment to see a counsellor?
Personal counselling is a process of talking and listening to help creatively resolve problems. This is usually done on a one to one basis and may involve particular therapeutic interventions.
- feelings of anxiety, depression and other mental health concerns
- concerns about university work
- relationship difficulties (family, partners, friends, house-mates)
- stress at home, work or university
- managing life with disabilities or health issues
- loss or trauma
- worries about lack of confidence, body image, self-esteem
Counselling sessions are generally 50 minutes in duration. A typical session might:
- help identify issues, explain and clarify your feelings
- help you to resolve your problem or establish a therapeutic framework to assist this process
- provide you with information about University systems and procedures
- refer you to other helpful resources on campus
- offer you further counselling or refer you to a more appropriate agency in the wider community
