Counselling & Mental Health

Welcome to the Counselling & Mental Health Service

We are a multi-disciplinary team of skilled and experienced counsellors and mental health advisors who understand how mental health issues can affect your studies, work, and life.

We provide free and confidential counselling and mental health advice, self-help resources, and workshops for students and staff of the University of Bradford.

We work in partnership with the local NHS Bradford District and Craven Talking Therapies Service that offers free and confidential support for students and staff registered with a GP in Bradford, Airedale, Wharfedale or Craven. 

Our counselling service is accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

If you are in a crisis situation, please visit our Urgent Help page.
