Mental Health and Counselling Support

Students talkingWe aim to support all students to get the most from their life at University.

We support and respond to students' emotional needs and general wellbeing. The service has a preventative, as well as responsive role, offering therapeutic intervention, group work, life skills support, consultancy and training.

We offer both face to face and online therapy. For face to face we offer initial appointments and aim to see students within five working days from the day that they make contact. For online therapy, please complete the online registration form.

Feeling home sick? Then get some help here

Due to high demand, we are currently operating a waiting list. Unless you plan to be in Newcastle over the summer break, you are unlikely to be seen for face to face therapy this academic year. Details of alternative support options can be found here


Consultancy is an advice and signposting service, operated by qualified Student Wellbeing Service professionals, for those who are concerned about the mental health of a Newcastle University student.
