We can help you with a range of issues including:

  • mild to moderate mental health difficulties
  • anxiety and depression
  • academic pressures
  • dealing with procrastination 
  • difficulties with perfectionism
  • shame
  • family problems
  • gender identity
  • experiences of bullying
  • bereavement and grief
  • low self-esteem
  • assertiveness/self confidence
  • sexuality identity

Things we can't help with

We are not an emergency or a crisis service. If you need urgent care, find out where you can get emergency help.

We do not provide mental health treatment or long-term therapeutic care if you have severe or complex mental health conditions. We cannot replace NHS mental health support.

Contact your doctor or the Students' Health Service if you need treatment for an ongoing mental health condition: for example

  • an eating disorder
  • bipolar disorder
  • post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • schizophrenia
  • addictions
  • historical abuse.
