The Counselling Service is a multi-disciplinary central specialist service for student and staff mental health and wellbeing provision in the University. It sits within the Student Support and Wellbeing Directorate. The Counselling Service provides support for the institution by providing individual and group interventions, consultancy and support for College and Departmental Staff, and the development, delivery or support for proactive initiatives around mental health and wellbeing. The Service exists to enable students to make the most of the academic and social opportunities that the University affords, and to enable staff to fulfil their potential in the workplace. The Service is responsive to the changing needs of Durham University and operates within clear ethical and professional guidelines.

Counsellors offer time-limited individual and group interventions for the students and staff of Durham University, consult with wider university staff and NHS professionals as appropriate, and take an active role in other aspects of the service management as directed by the Head of Service. Counsellors autonomously manage a caseload of clients, supported by clinical supervision and caseload management meetings.
