The counselling Service
The Student Counselling service is a place where students can take their problems in complete confidence.
It is likely that at some stage during your time at St. George’s or in your later careers you will experience problems or difficulties of some sort - and in fact you would be most unusual if you didn’t! Whilst talking things through with a friend can be very helpful, there are times when friends are not available or it just feels too difficult or too personal. Your personal tutor may be able to help, but you may prefer to see someone who is separate and removed from the academic and assessment process, where you can be sure of confidentiality.
Here you will find an objective listener who will encourage you to talk about whatever may be troubling you, and help you to find your own solutions.
The counsellors are qualified, experienced and friendly.
The service is free, entirely confidential and is open to all St George’s students. Although it is popular, the counsellors guarantee an appointment within two weeks.
The Counsellors are:
Meg Errington, Sheila Root, Susan Murphy & John Taggart
