The College offers a supportive one to one counselling service (for students who are experiencing severe personal difficulties while at college), with a professionally named, widely experienced college counsellor.
Depending on the needs of the student , the counsellor will provide the support that is most appropriate. This may be further one to one sessions, or referred to an external professional agency. The counselling service also offers group sessions for groups of students who may be suffering from similar issues eg exam stress.
We provide a safe and secure place for students to discuss the issues that are affecting them. If you are experiencing difficulties discuss these with your Progress Leader or Mentor. If you need further support they will refer you to the college counsellor.
The Counselling Service is a free service available to all full and part-time students. Last year 300+ students accessed the service.
We also offer online resources or DVDs, these are available from Learner Services.
