Discussing your concerns with us

If you are concerned about a student that you know, encourage them to contact us and arrange an appointment/drop-in session.

If you would like to speak to us about your concerns and/or receive information about the services available at the University, can call us: +44 (0) 141 330 4528. 

If a counsellor is not present, leave your contact number with the administration team or on answerphone, and one will get back to you. 

Data protection

You will not be able to speak to the counsellor who is seeing the student in question. This is to safeguard the trust and impartiality of the counselling relationship and to ensure that we are in accordance with Data Protection legislation.

Also, we will not be able to provide information about the student, including whether or not we are seeing them. Similarly, we will not share that you have contacted us in relation to them without your permission.
