If students encounter personal or emotional difficulties during their time at the University, they can consult with our professional counsellor confidentially. Counselling involves one or more meetings in a safe and confidential setting. Students will have the time and space to discuss any difficulties they are facing which may be interfering with their ability to study and enjoy their time as a student. Students come to counselling for all sorts of reasons but generally it is a good idea to seek help before things start to feel unmanageable. Counselling can give students the opportunity to talk and think things through with someone from outside their social circle. This can feel supportive and offers the perspective of developing a fresh perspective on an individual’s difficulties.
The University’s counsellor, Dr George Kaliaden, is a qualified clinical psychologist, experienced in working with young people. Students can make an appointment to see him at the Reception Desk of Block 16 or contact him directly via the details below:
