Counselling

Newcastle Sixth Form College have a dedicated counsellor who is available for all students who need a confidential space to discuss any difficulties they may be experiencing. The counsellor can also offer advice on agencies external to the Sixth Form who can offer additional support for students. Sessions usually take place by pre-arranged appointment and are on a weekly basis, unless you request otherwise.

 

 

 
 
 
The support staff at NSFC have been amazing, helping me with my mental health, college work and getting me to lessons. They have gone above and beyond when supporting me, to make sure I stayed at college to achieve my goals. They have also helped me to increase my independence. Without their support, I wouldn’t be who I am today.
