There is also a Counselling Service is available to all full-time and part-time students enrolled at Wiltshire College. The service is free and term-time only. In general there is no limit to the number of sessions or the number of times that students can access the Counselling Service. Some students come only once or twice, some for a term or longer, this is negotiated with each student.

to understand and take
control of my anxiety
There may, however, be times when there is high demand for counselling and on those occasions we reserve the right to limit the number of sessions to no more than six per student.
