University Counselling Service

Student Counselling
 

The Michaelmas Term timetable is now live.

We run three kinds of groups at UCS - workshops, focused groups and longer counselling groups. 

The workshops are generally one-off events and do not require any ongoing commitment.  

The focused groups are for people who want help with a particular issue.   Longer counselling groups offer support over a period of several weeks.

To ensure a group experience, we aim to run groups and workshops of six participants or more and if there are insufficient numbers to run a group or workshop it may be cancelled.

Workshops - what happens next?

Once we receive your workshop registration form, you will get a text message to confirm your place. You will receive the Zoom invitation to attend up to a day before it starts.

Please be aware, if you register for multiple workshops at the same time, you will receive one text confirming your place on all of them, so make a note of the workshops you have booked onto.

To apply for workshops please click here and complete the form titled 'Workshop Registration Form'

During the COVID-19 situation, all University Counselling Service groups and workshops will be held remotely, online via Zoom.us until further notice.

In order to for students to join, you will need to either download Zoom (https://zoom.us/download) or install the app on your mobile phone or tablet (search for Zoom US). 

Groups- what happens next?

Please be aware that you can only attend one group at a time. Please therefore register for your first choice this term. There will be opportunities to attend other groups in another term. For general information about groups at the Counselling Service, please click here.

You are welcome to book places on our one or two session workshops alongside your other counselling commitments. Unless otherwise stated all our groups and workshops are open to undergraduates and postgraduates.
