Counselling service for colleges


Counselling service for colleges

It is widely recognised that dealing with young people’s mental health has become a regular part of teachers and lecturers workloads. Even with well-developed pastoral care systems, there is often a need for additional support to meet the emotional and mental health needs of young people today.


Our Counselling and Psychotherapy service for students offers affordable counselling to students aged 18 and over. Our practitioners work with students with a wide range of individual emotional, psychological and social stressors.

Newman Health & Wellbeing Counselling & Psychotherapy brings the skills of practitioners, tutors and trainee practitioners together to deliver a professional counselling service. Students will be matched to a counsellor that is best able to relate to the student and the issues they are looking to resolve.


How counselling can help students

Counselling can help your student with:

  • Anger and Anxiety
  • Depression and low mood
  • Bereavement and loss
  • Bullying
  • Difficulties with relationships of all types
  • Difficulties with transitions or adjusting
  • Trauma and all types of abuse
  • Stress including exam related stress
  • Sexual orientation

“Counselling has helped me consider and focus on my own needs and what feels right for me. To feel calmer and less reactive. Feeling more positive..”
