Student & Staff Counselling

Studying at Cambridge


UCS Staff Members

All the counsellors, therapists and cognitive behavioural therapists employed in the Counselling Service are professionally qualified and highly experienced. We use the term 'counsellor' to include staff who work in a variety of different approaches, including psychodynamic psychotherapy, cognitive behavioural therapy, integrative therapy and
person-centred therapy.

Associate Counsellors are people who are newly qualified or in the final stages of their professional training and are doing a placement in the Service, typically for one day per week.

Staff can be contacted via the main Service phone number.
