Student Counselling

Self help

We encourage all students to explore ways to work towards your own mental and emotional health and wellbeing. Sometimes, this is all the support you need; at other times it complements individual therapy sessions.

There are a number of apps and services where you can listen to guided meditations, or short videos that may help to support your mental health.
