Wellbeing Services

At Greystone House we offer a range of wellbeing services, including counselling, to support you in attending College and to succeed in your studies. Wellbeing services can be accessed alongside any other community support that’s in place, and this doesn’t replace any other specialist services or advice from your GP.

Our services are designed to help you get the most out of College life by providing:

  • Resources to deal with common issues such as mild anxiety, stress and depression
  • The opportunity to gain a different perspective in a calm, non-­judgemental space
  • Information and advice on signposting within College and to external specialist agencies

You can access our wellbeing service by attending Wellbeing Drop-In. This is at Greystone House and is open every College day between 10am – 3pm. You can also email or call 01392 400409 to find out more.
