If you wish to make an appointment with the Counselling Service,  email and they will either arrange a phone session, or once they have IG clearance, a video session.

You can also register with the Disability Advisory and Support Service (DASS) and a disability support plan put in place for you in the usual way.  Students can either contact DASS themselves, or we can do a referral to DASS, with your permission, by completing the relevant forms, and forwarding to DASS.
