Counsellors giving excellent service

Some 620 students received nearly 3,000 hours of counselling in the first year of the University Student Counselling Service.

More than twice as many women as men sought counselling on a range of issues, the most common of which were depression and problems with relationships with their families. Numbers were evenly split between first and second years, with a slight fall in the third. Just under 100 of the Service's clients were postgraduates.

Over 90 percent of visitors to the centre said they received "good" or "excellent" service, according to the Service's annual report.
