College-based Counsellor

Bredon House and East Court

In addition to the University Counselling Service (UCS) the College has a College-based Counsellor who is onsite at Wolfson on Fridays.

The Service is free and available to all students at Wolfson. Students who are intermitting from their studies may be referred to their GP or offered a limited service with a view to referral.

How do I make an appointment?

Cathy NottinghamMany people sort out problems by talking to friends, family or staff in their College or Department. For others it is a matter of looking up information about things that concern them: the UCS has a large section of self-help information on their website. However, there are times when this isn't enough and you may wish to speak to the College-based Counsellor in a private setting.

The College-based Counsellor primarily offers brief counselling, with the majority of students seen for 6 sessions or fewer. Brief counselling involves an active, collaborative process, with ongoing sessions or follow-up sessions scheduled at weekly, fortnightly or longer intervals. This therapeutic approach can be very effective for help with a wide range of personal, developmental and academic-related problems.

If you would like further information or to book an appointment you can contact the College-based Counsellor, Cathy Nottingham by emailing:

The Counsellor will reply to your email with an appointment, which you will be asked to confirm within a stated period of time.

During peak times, your details may be placed on a waiting list until a suitable appointment becomes available.
