5 ∂ Counselling Service

6 ∂ The counselling service aims to provide students with therapeutic support for personal or mental health concerns with the objective of helping them to fulfil their academic potential. The service is confidential, offered without charge and available all year round. We can offer up to 6 sessions of counselling and those needing further therapy are supported in finding long term support through private, charitable and statutory agencies.

7 ∂ Counselling Service Each week day during term time we provide a ‘drop-in’ service at 9.00am in Durham and 10.45am in QCS. The ‘drop in’ is primarily for emergencies and no appointment is necessary but students must arrive on time to ensure they are seen. Self help, top up support and crisis support information is found on our webpages. Students can find advice on such concerns as Depression, Disordered Eating, Overcoming Worry, Panic, Procrastination, and Social Anxiety.
