Your time at College can be very rewarding, but it's also a time when many students face difficulties either at college or in their personal lives.
If you find yourself experiencing problems, speaking to a counsellor will give you the opportunity to talk privately to someone who will listen, value you as an individual and who will not make judgements about you. The College Counsellors are friendly people, who are experienced in helping people with any issues they might be tackling. The College Counselling Service has helped many students with a variety of issues for example:
- problems affecting the student's home or personal life
- problems which are causing college life or course work to suffer
- students feeling they are being bullied or victimised in some way
- students feeling confused, anxious or generally not coping as normal
The service is free, confidential and no one need know about the appointment unless you choose to tell them. The counselling room is a private, quiet place, which provides a comfortable and relaxed environment.
Any student can access the Counselling Service by asking for an appointment at the Student Services Centre, at the Deane Road Campus or by calling 01204 482 182. Appointments can take place at any of our centres.
