Leeds Trinity University's experienced, qualified and BACP accredited Counsellors support students through challenging times. They create a welcoming atmosphere to help you cope and find solutions where possible.
Sometimes you just want to talk to somebody who isn’t your friend or your mum.
Drop-in sessions and scheduled appointments
Whether you're feeling left out by your friends or recently had a family grievance, the counselling service provides the opportunity to talk in confidence about any issues causing concern. Your views and opinions will be respected and you will not be judged.
Once you're here, it's easy to request an appointment for short-term counselling. Sessions are available through the week during term-time and there is some provision throughout holidays.
You can make an enquiry with our full-time Counsellor, Sue Jack, on +44 (0) 113 283 7192, firstname.lastname@example.org or by coming along to one of the scheduled daily drop-in sessions.
During the year we give students the opportunity to attend particular topics in a group format. One example would be the "settling in" group for those students finding the transition to university life challenging.
Equipping you with self-help
Common problems that students may face can often be resolved with our self-help provision. This is readily available on campus by using the student intranet counselling pages or by visiting the counselling service waiting area.
Examples of our available self-help resources include:
