The service consists of an advisor who works in a 40% position who is able to offer counselling, guidance, information about your rights and help to get in touch with other support agencies. The service aims to be easily accessible with minimal waiting time.

You do not need a referral or a prior appointment to take advantage of the counselling service. The service is free and we have a duty of confidentiality.

The office is located on the second floor of the D-building, room number D238 and is open on:

  • Tuesday 9.30 a.m. – 5.45 p.m.
  • Wednesday 10.30 a.m. – 3.00 p.m.

You can drop by the office or call to schedule an appointment.
