Our peer supporters

The peer supporters are a group of friendly individuals who have been trained by the University Counselling Service in listening and support skills. The peer support system is there to help you when you need it most; going to the doctors with you or emailing your tutors when you’re ill, but it also exists because sometimes we all need a friendly face to talk to about our problems, however trivial. They won’t judge, will be discreet and certainly won’t break your confidence or trust. They can also refer you on to professionals for more serious issues.
