An independent and confidential counselling service is available to students of the University via Student Advice. We refer students to The Park Practice, located at Greetwell Place in Lincoln.
The advantage of this system of referral is that access to the service is off-campus and, therefore, very discreet. Any information you disclose to Student Advice before a referral takes place will be handled sensitively and professionally in line with Student Advice’s confidentiality policy.
The Park Practice is not very far away from the University, but if access is an issue for you, it is possible to access counselling via telephone or e-mail. If you feel neither of these options is appropriate, please contact Student Advice and we will seek to make alternative arrangements for you.
Please click here to be taken through to the Common Problems page of Royal Holloway’s Counselling Service (part of the University of London). They have kindly given us permission to link to their site so that our students can make use of the range of leaflets they have produced on a wide range of personal and emotional issues, both study and non-study related.
Please note: you will not be able to use the e-mail counselling service mentioned on the page, as this is only available to Royal Holloway students.
