Before we can give you an appointment, you need to self refer using our webform. No-one else can refer you to our Service. We would then aim to contact you within two weeks
Please remember to make an appointment with your GP if you are concerned about how you are feeling.
We encourage you to talk to your school if your current difficulties are impacting on your studies, either your Personal Tutor or Student Support Team.
Need urgent help?
If you need support right now, there are several numbers you can call – even if you’re not based in the UK.
Before you complete the form
Our self referral form asks for key information about you so we can get you the most appropriate help.
Before making a referral, you may find it useful to look at some of our self-help resources and the page outlining the counselling process.
What we ask
There are two parts to the form: contact details and availability, and the second part helps you set out the reasons you are approaching us and to enable the counsellor prepare for the assessment. You can save a draft copy of your form for up to 24 hours.
Part one - Your details and availability
It’s especially important that we get your contact details right, to avoid data protection issues, so parts of the first section are compulsory.
This section of the form also asks for details of your Personal Tutor/Supervisor. However, we’ll only contact them if you ask us to, or in extreme circumstances.
Part two - Reasons for seeking counselling
The second part helps you set out the reasons you are approaching us and to enable the counsellor prepare for the assessment. This part of the form is not compulsory.
However, it is very helpful to us to know more about why you would like counselling, so we can make sure you get the right kind of help.
The more slots you’re available for, the easier it will be for us to find a suitable time for you. It is important to keep us updated of any changes, we will always offer you a time when you say you are available. If you decline or cancel an appointment it may be 2 - 3 weeks before we can offer you another one.
