Student Psychological and Counselling Services

We're dedicated to helping UCL students with personal, emotional and psychological concerns. Our service is free to undergraduate and postgraduate students registered at UCL.

Our service is intended to provide short-term counselling, 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.
