Wellbeing and Counselling

We know that experiencing mental health difficulties at university can feel overwhelming. However, we can support you while you are studying at The 鶹Ƶ. We will provide you with confidential, unbiased and non-judgemental services, and can also signpost you to appropriate support services outside of The 鶹Ƶ.

The 鶹Ƶ offers support to all students through the Wellbeing Team, Counselling Team and specialist study skills support. The Wellbeing Team (wellbeing@courtauld.ac.uk)  is the first point of call for students who are experiencing any form of personal, health, financial or welfare issues. We will provide guidance for students with a disability, mental or long-term health conditions and students who consider themselves to be neurodiverse or have a Specific Learning Difference (SpLD).

The team provides a proactive and professional service to all students, promoting equality and inclusivity throughout the organisation to enable you to reach your full potential.

Wellbeing can assist with a number of things including:

  • Accessibility and disability support
  • Mental health and emotional wellness
  • Support for personal and financial issues (including issues of a sensitive nature)
