We all experience problems and difficulties that affect our mental wellbeing and as a student, you may well find yourself experiencing such difficulties. These difficulties might be related to issues and events at university or they might be connected to previous experiences or issues in your personal life. Counselling offers the opportunity to talk to someone in a supportive setting, hopefully enabling you to find ways of managing or overcoming your difficulties, so that you can fulfil your potential in your studies and enjoy your time here at Staffordshire University.
We offer counselling at the Stoke and Stafford sites and you can access us at any point whilst you are a student at the University. If counselling is not helpful or appropriate, we can also refer you to other support services, both within and external to the University.
You can email, telephone or visit us in person to make an appointment. (See contact details below.)
Please note that our e-mail address is for enquiries and making appointments only. It is checked during opening hours by our admin team who will respond to your request, usually within one working day of receiving your email (excluding weekends, Public Holidays and occasional days when we are closed).
If you feel you need support urgently, please phone or visit us in person during opening hours, so that we can arrange an appointment with a Counsellor or one of the Student Wellbeing Advisors as quickly as possible. (Also see Emergency Support for other options, particularly if you are seeking support outside our opening times.)
We are open 8.45am – 5pm Monday – Friday, including University vacation periods.
(But please note that we are closed on Public Holidays.)
If you are a Staffordshire University student studying at a Partner institution and wish to access counselling, you will need to do this at the institution where you are studying. For a list of Partner institutions, please see UK Partnerships and International Partnerships.
