ACM offer free counselling and stress management to students.
The aim of counselling at ACM is to provide a safe and strictly confidential environment for students to discuss concerns and problems which may be causing them general stress, anxiety or confusion. Students utilise the counselling service to talk about subjects like:
- panic attacks, anxiety or depression
- relationship/family difficulties
- feeling unable to cope
- lacking confidence
- performance anxiety
- a general feeling of unhappiness
- eating disorders
- addictions and self harm
- being abused or bullied
- loss and bereavement
- feeling that life is out of control
- low self esteem
The process of counselling, along with other strategies, will usually help to manage stress and allow students to gain a clearer understanding of their difficulties. This should help them to feel better about themselves and enable them to cope more easily with their everyday life and studies, while making the most of their time at ACM.
Students will be put in touch with a fully qualified and experienced counsellor who is highly skilled.
Each session will provide a framework in which students are given time, attention and respect to explore their concerns.
