Rachel Fahy-Cobden

Wellbeing Advisor (King's Business School)

Contact details


"I'm the advisor for King's Business School and joined KCL in July 2021 after working as a Mental Health Advisor in Universities in London for over 6 years. Before this, I worked as an Assistant Psychologist and Research Assistant; however, I missed working in education and supporting students, so I moved back into student support. My specialist area within our team is mental health, I work closely with the Mental Health and Counselling Team. I am also involved in training staff in suicide intervention skills.

I am passionate about helping students learn how to cope with challenges that can arise whilst studying. We are all human, and our ability to cope and manage can fluctuate. In my eyes, learning to manage your wellbeing as a student is a key building block to help you succeed at University. I use a holistic approach when supporting students, this could be through mentoring, coaching, psychoeducation or helping a student understand what support is available to them here at KCL. I feel really fortunate to work in this team, as my colleagues are all really knowledgeable and supportive. This means that if I don’t have the answer to a query that a student brings to me, the chances are my team will.

Outside of work I love being by the water whether it is walking, kayaking or even trying my hand at paddle boarding on the Thames. I also enjoy yoga, learning, reading and different crafts."
