Counselling and Wellbeing

We offer an impartial and confidential counselling service to all
students. Counselling gives an opportunity to talk over any matters
causing concern and aims to help explore concerns.

Concerns may include:

  • personal problems
  • stress/panic attacks
  • loneliness
  • course difficulties
  • relationships or family difficulties
  • depression
  • trauma and crisis
  • bereavement

Whatever problems our students face, talking with a trained
counsellor can help. The counsellors have an appointment system,
so students can sign up at a convenient time and place. Students
can ask at Reception to make an appointment.


We also have a team of nurses who can provide support and advice on a range of health related issues as well as external agencies who work with the College for extra support. Further information about health issues is available on the Your Health Sunderland website.

Students can also call 0191 511 6000 or email Welfare Services to make an appointment with the counsellor or College nurses.
