Important information if you're contacting us before Christmas about making an appointment
Please note that we currently do not have any counselling appointments available until the end of January 2014. If you require more urgent support please contact your GP. The Samaritans also run a 24-hour helpline which you may find helpful.
Students can find the pressures of University life hard to manage; whether because of exams, coursework deadlines, or simply coping with the events life throws you. Completing The Relief Series programme may help you to understand, address and relieve your symptoms without the need for counselling.
The Relief Series is a CBT based online multimedia programme available to all Cardiff University students, providing self-help tools to identify, motivate and educate you around common mental health issues. To start using the programme follow the instructions in "Getting Started".
To Make a Counselling Appointment
If you'd prefer to continue with the process of making a counselling appointment, please complete our online Self-Referral Questionnaire.
What Happens Next?
Once your questionnaire has been submitted, it will be processed by a member of our Counselling Team. You will then receive a text from us requesting that you phone us to book an appointment.
The initial appointment called a Therapeutic Consultation is 1.5 hours long and can be booked for either Cathays Campus or Heath Park Campus or on-line if you prefer Email, Instant Messaging or Skype.
To book your appointment please call us either on Tuesday's or Friday's between 9-4 pm, or Thursday's between 9-1pm. Alternatively, you can leave a voice mail or send us an email and we will get back to you.
