The Counselling Service offers short-term counselling to current Dundee University students and staff.

We have a team of counsellors with a wide variety of backgrounds and experience, and our sessions are free.

Counselling provides a safe space for you to talk about your issues or concerns. Our sessions are friendly, supportive and confidential. It's healthier to explore it with an experienced counsellor than bottle it up and never see an improvement. And if we can't help you, we'll let you know and we may also suggest other sources of help.


We are currently offering counselling sessions by telephone or Microsoft Teams and are unable to offer face-to-face counselling at the present time. Due to differences in regulations, we are unable to offer counselling to students/staff currently not resident in the UK.

We are monitoring the situation closely and aim to resume face-to-face work as soon as we feel it is safe to do so. Please check this webpage for future updates.

We understand that some people will have reservations about telephone or video counselling. However, studies have shown that this can be as effective as face-to-face counselling. Please discuss any concerns you have with your counsellor who may be able to address these. 


Strict confidentiality is always maintained as it is an essential part of our process.

We won't disclose any personal information, verbal or written, without your consent, unless you or some else is in danger.

We will share some non-personal statistical information within the University for administrative purposes. See our Privacy Notice for more information.
