Student Psychological and Counselling Services

We're dedicated to helping UCL students with personal, emotional and psychological concerns. Our service is available at no cost to undergraduate and postgraduate students registered at UCL.

UCU strike action and support services

Student Support and Wellbeing's services are open during UCU (University and College Union) strike action from Monday 25 November to Wednesday 4 December 2019. The drop-in service is available each UCL working day.

If you have a pre-arranged appointment with one of our advisers or counsellors, please attend.

Please note that we are unable to answer any administrative questions about the strike, such as whether or not your classes will be running or how the strike might affect your studies. In these cases, please contact your academic department.

Read further information for students about the UCU strike action in our FAQs.

Our service is intended to provide short-term counselling, cognitive behavioural therapy, psychiatric support and psycho-educational groups to help you deal with a range of personal, emotional and psychological concerns. As such we do not provide support for long-term conditions or in the event of an emergency.
