Counselling

Who we are and what we do

If you feel you need help and support beyond that offered by tutors, friends or family, counselling could help. Talking to a counsellor in a safe, non-judgemental and confidential setting can enable you to work through your problems with the aim of reaching a solution. Counselling is also an excellent tool for your own personal development.

The Counselling Service is student focused and we offer single therapeutic sessions for one hour booked on a session by session basis.

The AUB Counselling Service maintains a professional accreditation awarded by the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and fully adheres to it’s Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions. We have a team of professionally qualified and experienced male and female counsellors and we offer two supervised placements for trainee counsellors in their final year before qualification.

Counselling is a confidential process and only in exceptional circumstances would this confidentiality be broken and direct action taken – usually if there is an immediate risk to your own safety or that of others.

The full details of confidentiality can be found in the Counselling Service Policy and Confidentiality Statement which is available to view or download on the AUB Viewpoint page under Student Services/Counselling.

To learn more about the service you can contact us by emailing: counselling@aub.ac.uk. If you wish to book an appointment you can call 0044 1202 363703 or come in to Student Services and the reception team will find the next convenient appointment for you.
