The Counselling Service


The University's Counselling Service

It is likely that at some stage during your time at St George’s 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. The counselling service is staffed by qualified, experienced and friendly counsellors who will encourage you to talk about whatever may be troubling you, and help you to find your own solutions. No problem should be considered too small to be brought to the counselling service!

The service is free, entirely confidential and is open to all St George’s students. There are drop-in sessions on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday between 12pm - 1pm and bookings are not required for the drop-in sessions. Find out more information about the service here.

Opening Times:

  • Monday:       9am to 7pm
  • Tuesday:       9am to 7pm
  • Wednesday:  9am to 5pm
  • Thursday:      10am to 7pm
  • Friday:           9am to 5pm
