How can we help?

- Dealing with family or relationship issues?
- Anything else you're worried about?
Come and speak to us!
We provide a free and confidential service to all students and staff of the University of Bradford and Bradford College. In addition to counselling, we offer a range of support including self-help materials and wellbeing workshops.
We are completely independent of your academic studies or workplace and do not share information with staff in these areas.
We offer initial appointments and drop-in sessions to give clients the opportunity to get immediate support and to explore how further counselling may be of benefit.

To book appointment with a counsellor please register with us initially. Alternatively ring, text or email us (see details at the bottom of the page).
Once we receive your online registration we will contact you within 2 working days. If you do not hear back from us, it is possible we did not receive your form. If this is the case, please either re-submit the form or contact the service directly.
For a brief session with a counsellor without the need to book an appointment please attend a drop in appointment. Student drop in is at 13:45 and 14:15 every week day in term time. These appointments are first come, first served.
