Student Psychological and Counselling Services
Our service is intended to provide free short-term counselling, single session therapy, psychiatric support and group workshops to help you manage a range of personal, emotional and psychological concerns. We are unable to provide support for long-term conditions or in the event of a crisis situation. We aim to support as many students as we can and, as such, this means that you will only be able to access the service once in an academic year to allow for others to be able to access SPCS support.
Waiting times for counselling
As we approach the final term of the 2021-22 academic year, we are now offering Single Session Therapy to final year undergraduate students. This is to ensure that support can be offered to as many final year students as possible at this time. Click here for more information on Single Session Therapy.
Our waiting time for an initial appointment after registering is two to three weeks. This can sometimes rise in times of high demand. If we feel you are at higher risk, you will be prioritised.
All students are triaged within 24 hours of registering with SPCS. During triaging, if we feel you may be at higher risk, we will contact you by phone, email and/or text.
