Cardiff University Counselling

Our Counselling and Wellbeing service offers a wide range of support, including wellbeing and counselling appointments, interactive workshops and groups, to provide emotional support throughout your studies.

We believe it’s crucial to look after your health and wellbeing so you can make the most of your time here.

If you’re experiencing personal, emotional or psychological difficulties – or just interested in living a more healthy lifestyle – we can provide guidance, self-help materials, books and referrals for further specialist support.

Counselling and Wellbeing appointments

As part of our Counselling and Wellbeing service, we can offer appointments in person, over the phone, or via webcam, instant messaging or email.

We also provide a daily walk-in service – that you can attend without making an appointment – where a member of our team will spend 15 minutes giving you advice about the services we offer or selecting self-help materials to take away with you.


Throughout the year, we organise a range of informative, interactive one-off workshops on various subjects and difficulties commonly faced by students, including self-management and team-working, dealing with worry and presentation anxiety and stress management.

You’ll also have the opportunity to receive a self-management and wellbeing awareness certificate once you’ve attended a selection of workshops.

Therapeutic groups

Our therapeutic groups create a safe and confidential space to explore issues, share concerns and develop new skills over the course of several weeks. Topics include mindfulness, developing emotional resilience and ways of coping with stress, depression, anxiety and low self-esteem.

If you prefer to work through any difficulties in your own time, we have an online library that holds a vast array of self-help book titles, workbooks and e-books, as well as a large selection of hard copy titles that you are free to borrow from the Student Support Centre.
