Here whenever you need us.
The College offers a free, confidential professional counselling service to students and staff.
People attend counselling for all kinds of reasons including bullying, bereavement, stress, relationship difficulties, drugs and/or alcohol, anxiety / depression, sexual health or developmental concerns.
The sessions are 50 minutes long and following the assessment, the counsellor and user agree initially on the number of sessions required (up to 6 in the first instance).
The counsellor takes care to ensure that counselling remains confidential, subject to the limits of confidentiality. These limits are displayed in the confidentiality agreement in the counselling rooms and include if a person is of serious harm to themselves or others, acts of terrorism or any issues concerning child protection.
Leeds City College is committed to the health and well-being of all its students and staff. As a student or staff member you are welcome to access the Well-being drop in sessions.
The Well-being drops in sessions are provided by our counsellor and well-being advisors and student engagement officers across Campuses at various times each day.
These sessions are an opportunity to discuss anything that may be causing you some distress and explore the support services that are available in College and / or external support agencies.
They can also give you a space to explore any health concerns such as stopping smoking, drugs, contraception (C-card registration is available) and also pregnancy testing.
