Student Counselling

Belfast Met provides a counselling service for students with personal problems, great or small. Student counselling is provided by Inspire Students. The service is professional, confidential and free to students. Belfast Met works in partnership with Inspire to provide a comprehensive counselling service for all Belfast Met representatives, students and staff alike.

There are drop-in counsellors on campus each week, or counselling appointments can be made off campus anywhere in Northern Ireland. The 24hr freephone number (0808 800 0032) is a dedicated number for the use of Belfast Met students and welfare staff.

Support and resources are also available online at www.inspirewellbeing.org/students/. Students can also email: [email protected] to set up a referral for counselling.

Student counselling allows you to talk about and begin to explore any issues that are causing you difficulties. Whatever your difficulty, you can be assured of a sensitive and practical approach.
We also encourage our lecturers who have concerns about any of their students to use this service. Remember - you can contact Inspire at any time, as can lecturers on their student’s behalf, with the student present.
