Just want to talk?
If you just need a safe space to talk, we have a new service called ‘Time to Talk’. Book a ‘Time to Talk’ session to discuss home sickness, relationship break ups, problems with house mates and feeling stressed with course work or exams.
What is Time to talk?
The Time Talk service is for students who do not need specialist (e.g. psychological) support such as counselling but would benefit from a structured opportunity to talk to someone and to have a safe space to do this. The types of things people use our Time to Talk service for are to talk about home sickness, relationship break ups, problems with house mates and feeling stressed with course work or exams.
