The College provides a free and confidential College-Based Counselling service for all undergraduate and postgraduate members of the College during Full Term.

Arrangements during the COVID-19 pandemic

The College Counsellor is offering in-person and remote welfare check-in appointments for students via (audio or video to suit your preferred option).  

How do I make an appointment?

Many people sort out problems by talking to friends, family, or staff in their College or Department (including the college chaplain and college nurse and mental health advisor). Sometimes looking up some information about things that are concerning you is helpful and the UCS has a large section of self-help information on their website. However, there are times when this is not enough and you may wish to speak to the College-Based Counsellor in a private setting in College.

To contact the counsellor, or for more information, please go to College-Based Counselling at Peterhouse and complete the online form.

Please note, that during peak times, your application will be acknowledged and your details may be placed on a waiting list until a suitable appointment becomes available. The Counsellor is employed by the University Counselling Service (UCS), and students completing the online form are encouraged to apply to UCS and College-Based Counselling simultaneously for the shortest possible waiting time. College-Based Counselling is subject to all UCS's policies and procedures, including confidentiality.
