Did you know that the Counselling Service offer online counselling (email, Skype, IM) for students? If you are unable to access face to face counselling because you are away from Cardiff, studying or researching abroad or would find it difficult to come to us for health or practical reasons, then online counselling can provide you with support that is flexible and effective.
SPACE4U is a daily drop in service - based at 50 Park Place ONLY - where you can see a counsellor for 10-15 minutes (between 3 & 3.45pm) to ask questions or borrow a book. It is not a psychological assessment or a therapeutic session.
