University Counselling Service

Student Counselling

EasterTerm timetable.

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.
