We hope you enjoy your time here at Solent University and would like you to know that the counselling team offers a variety of support, including Counselling, Hypnotherapy and  Mental Health Advice, that may be of help if you are experiencing difficulties during your time at university. 

If you are finding things difficult it might be advisable to speak to your GP, tell them about your situation and see what support they can suggest.

Important Update for Counselling Appointments March 2018

The Counselling Service assesses various factors when allocating available sessions to students and at times when the service is busy, the waiting time (particularly for counselling sessions) may exceed six weeks.

Given the time in the academic year, if you are now submitting an assessment for counselling sessions you may not be able to access five weeks of sessions that we normally offer before you depart for the summer. The Counselling Service is open throughout the year therefore if you are staying in Southampton over the summer we are more likely to be able to offer you ongoing sessions. It would be really helpful if you could tell us when you are planning on leaving Southampton.


If you are interested in accessing our counselling, mental health or hypnotherapy services please read the information below before completing our online assessment form.

Please note, we will contact you via your University Solent email account.

The service is currently experiencing high levels of demand and this might affect how long you will have to wait.
