Student Counselling

For parents and families

When you are concerned about your daughter, son, friend or partner it is difficult to know what action to take that will help them.

For parents and carers

We recognise that, whilst coming to University is a very exciting time for students, it can nevertheless be quite stressful for parents and carers, so we hope this information will be helpful and will answer some of your questions.

For friends or partners

The Student Counselling Service is occasionally contacted by students with concerns about a friend or partner.
