Counselling & mental health support

What is Counselling?

Counselling offers a safe, confidential and supportive space, to help you explore your problems, share and gain insight into your feelings, thoughts and behaviour. The counsellor is there to help you identify and understand more clearly what is bothering you. The counsellor can help you to gain a different perspective on yourself and/or your problems and aid you in making choices and changes that feel right for you. This is a free and confidential service.

Mental Health Advisors: we’re here to listen

  *Please note this is not an emergency service, if you feel you require access to immediate medical assistance please contact your GP in the first instance or seek help via your nearest A&E department. More information can be found on Crisis Support: Need help now.

  • Mental health includes how we feel, think, behave and act and therefore is an integral part of your overall general health and well-being.
  • Students at King’s College London are able to talk to the university’s Mental Health Advisors (MHA’s) for practical support, information, advice and guidance about concerns or difficulties they may have.
  • Meetings with a MHA are a friendly and informal space in which to discuss your concerns and get help to access the necessary support to ensure you fulfil your potential whilst studying at King's College London.   
  • Students may not always be clear as to what help or support they may need or what is most appropriate for their needs and speaking with a MHA can help this process.
