Welcome to the University Counselling Service (UCS)

UCS  is a free confidential service available to all students at The University of Sheffield.

Booking an Assessment with Online Registration

UCS is able to make an assessment of your emotional and personal issues via a 'Triage' appointment.

All service users, including previous clients, should register online. It takes 2 minutes to complete and we see everyone within 10 working days.
