If you would like to make a report to the police, the Student Wellbeing Centre can support you to do this. If you are not sure whether you want to make a report to the police, the Student Wellbeing Centre can help you to make an anonymous report to the police. Making an anonymous report does not preclude you from making a full report to the police at a later date. Whether or not you make a police report is your decision, and you can get support from the Student Wellbeing Centre regardless. We will never pass your details on to the police without your consent.
Supporting your emotional wellbeing
The Student Wellbeing Centre has two services which can support you; the Counselling Service and the Wellbeing Service.
- The Counselling Service is free and confidential. You can speak to a professionally trained counsellor about any personal concerns or experiences that may be affecting you. To book an appointment please come into the Student Wellbeing Centre from 11am on the day you wish to be seen. We will then allocate you an appointment for the same day (subject to availability). Please note that we do not pre-book counselling appointments and we do not book them by telephone or email.
- The Wellbeing Service is the opportunity to meet with a Wellbeing Advisor who you can talk to about any area of your life. The Wellbeing Advisor can then discuss the different ways in which we can support you. We run daily drop-in sessions for the Wellbeing Service, these are Monday-Friday between 12-2pm and on Thursday evenings between 5-7pm. You do not need to book, just come into the Student Wellbeing Centre.
