The University's counselling service for staff has new premises and a new website.

The University’s Staff Counselling Service has moved from Lensfield Road to 17 Mill Lane. It is hoped that the more central location will make the service more accessible for staff.

The Counselling Service offers up to ten sessions of free professional counselling to University staff members to support them in dealing with a range of issues and difficulties. Counselling provides the opportunity to explore and process whatever is troubling you right now in a confidential and non-judgmental setting with a professional listener who is not involved in your difficulties. 

The Staff Counselling Service is run by qualified and accredited therapists who are highly experienced, working within a range of theoretical modalities and used to working with people from different backgrounds and cultures and with a wide variety of issues.

The range of issues that people bring to counselling varies hugely.  It includes:work issues such as stress, bullying or harassment, work block or difficult relationships with colleagues; personal issues such as bereavement, family or relationship difficulties, cultural experiences, or identity issues, which might relate to sexual orientation or gender identity, low confidence or low self-esteem and more general issues such as depression, anxiety, abuse and communication difficulties.

The Counselling Service runs “pop-up” services in other University locations, operating one day a week at Greenwich House, and one day a week from the postdoc centre on the Biomedical Campus.
