What We Offer
Our wellbeing service provides confidential counselling support for exam stress and anxiety management sessions via telephone by appointment.
Our sessions should not be seen as way to resolve long standing deep seated issues or as a replacement for analytical psychotherapy.
Please be aware that we are an external provider and not an integral part of your academic institution.
We do reserve the right to refuse service. Provision of service is at our discretion and it is not mandatory that we offer sessions to you. Should you have any queries or require clarification in this regard please contact your university Learning Support department.
Also, our terms and conditions may change without notice, although we try to inform you beforehand of any changes.
Each therapist is an independent practitioner. Totalwellness.info refers students to a therapist and the therapist can choose to accept the referral or not.
You can request change of therapist depending upon availability.
Complaints can be made by emailing: email@example.com and also by contacting your institution via Learning Support.
When you complete the Registration Forms, we will review them and offer you a Way Forward/Assessment appointment as soon as one becomes available.
You are only a phone call away from getting the support you need.
The service's approach is integrative and solution focused and short term.
An Integrative approach is when different techniques are blended to meet the uniqueness of each of our clients.
Our wellbeing professionals are qualified, insured, maintain professional memberships and attend mandatory supervision.
Your feedback is important to us.
We welcome compliments, comments and complaints please send them to Carmen King,
