University Counselling Services

The Counselling Service provides free & confidential short-term therapy to students of the University of Sussex. Students do not need to be referred to counselling and can book themselves an initial appointment to discuss their options available (see below).

We are aware that there is currently a high demand for our Service. If you are finding it difficult to book an appointment, please contact our Reception team on 01273 67 (8156) who will be able to advise you. Please do consider SILVERCLOUD as a helpful interactive self-help tool whilst you are waiting (see "Self-help resources" below).
