Recent analysis states that the number of students seeking mental health support while studying at university has increased by more than 50% in five years. We can support your counselling and mental health services and help you deliver vital mental health support to your students to ensure they remain engaged in their studies.
We have a national network of 5,000 specialist support staff. We support over 17,000 Higher Education students with Mentoring, Study Skills Support, Notetaking, and Practical Support. Therefore we have the capacity to supply into universities quickly and alleviate the pressures being faced by your team.
500 of our support staff hold the necessary qualifications and professional body memberships with British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and the National Counselling Society (NCS). Many of these staff are already working as counsellors or psychotherapists, and could support your service.
If additional recruitment is needed, as the world's leading recruiter we are able to source candidates quickly. We are also resourced to take them through compliance quickly and efficiently, meaning we can recruit specifically for your HEI if you have any further specialist requirements.
We are already supporting Universities and colleges with Counsellors and mental health specialists. We have processes in place that we can replicate in order to supply into your counselling and wellbeing services quickly and reduce waiting lists.
We can tailor to suit the needs and requirements of the service and can dove-tail into current processes and set you up to ensure that students receive counselling support, irrespective of any staffing challenges you may be facing. We are here to provide much needed counselling support to your students along with providing wellbeing mentors to support students with short term 'stressors' to remain engaged.
