The College Counselling Service is available to help you with any personal difficulties that you may be experiencing during your time at the College. These issues may be related your studies, such as stress, anxiety about exams or concerns about return to study, but there may also be personal issues at home or at work that are causing you difficulty in some way. The counsellors are not here to advise you but are available to listen to your concerns and support you in finding your own solutions. The service is free and confidential. Sessions take place during term times at the Chelsea and Kensington Centres, although the service is available to students attending any of the College sites. Even if you are unsure about whether counselling can help you, please do get in touch to talk it over and find out.
All College counsellors subscribe to the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy Ethical Framework for Good Practice.
The Senior Counsellor can be contacted on:
020 7573 5358 (Kensington Centre)

There are lifts at the Chelsea and Kensington Centre (except for the Carlyle building). Where possible we can arrange for a class to take place at ground level. We can also install a loop induction system at all sites. Please let us know if you would like this service.
Support and advice are always important during your studies. For this reason all students have an Individual tutorial each term where they discuss their progress and plan action to improve their performance. Full-time students also have weekly group tutorials where they focus on developing personal and social skills to improve their chances of being successful in education and work.
College Youth Workers organise a range of activities across the College throughout the year for all students.
We welcome your views, ideas and contributions. If you would like to make a difference during your college life, please stand for election as a class representative or as a member of the College Student Council.
The College produce a regular newsletter containing news, views, articles, reviews and information about what is going on in the College.
