my career online

The student counselling service is confidential and available to all students. It is here to help students who are experiencing personal difficulties that interfere with their work and life at College.

Counsellors can help students to understand their difficulties so that they can choose to make informed decisions. Sometimes students want support through a painful time and may have one or two sessions. For other students, they may want more focused help with an ongoing issue and have several sessions.

What happens in counselling?

For much of the time Counsellors listen to you and try to understand how you experience your life. Sometimes they may reflect back to you to check that they have understood and for you to 'hear' yourself which can often be useful. Counsellors may use other ways to help you explore your issues and concerns but most importantly they are not there to judge you.
