The Psychological Therapies and Counselling Service is run in partnership with Inspire, a local counselling organisation. Working with Inspire gives Queen's students access to a range of different clinical skills and helps meet demand for counselling at particularly busy times of the year.
Counsellors can work with you on a range of issues, aimed at helping you to identify and manage issues affecting your ability to progress with your studies. Student counselling is provided on a short-term, brief solution focused model, normally between 4 - 6 sessions. The service is not a substitute for longer term psychological or therapeutic support which should be accessed through your GP and to which your counsellor may refer you.
Counselling staff are all trained, experienced, and extremely committed to the work they do. You will be gently challenged to face your problems, to set goals on how to achieve solutions to your problems and actively work towards those goals. Please use details below to book a counselling appointment directly with Inspire. Counselling is free to all registered students at Queen's.
All students at the University can contact Inspire's Student Helpline, which operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
