Students seeking more help from counsellors
Demand for psychological support services on campus has risen by 16 per cent over the past three years, according to a poll of about a third of all university counsellors undertaken by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, published on 6 December.
Students who met with a university counsellor attended an average of 4.5 counselling sessions last year, the survey says.
Anxiety, depression, relationship issues, academic problems and self-identity issues are the most common themes raised by students, the survey says.
