Counselling at BMet is free and confidential
We like all of our students to be supported as much as possible whilst studying at college. If you have a problem and friends and family aren’t able to help, we can provide you with an opportunity to talk and discuss your concerns or worries freely and openly with a counsellor who won’t judge you or your issues.
Everything is kept completely confidential, unless you are in danger of harm. This will be discussed with you by your counsellor.
No problem is ever too big or small to and to talk about how you feel can really help.
Sharing your feelings with a counsellor and finding solutions to move forward in your life can help you feel happier about yourself and raise your self-esteem.

Our counsellor is a fully qualified, accredited member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy.
Counselling is voluntary and no one can make you attend.

Birmingham St Mary’s Hospice have launched a new bereavement telephone service, providing free one-to-one support to those 18+ who are struggling with the loss of a loved one.
This new service can be accessed by anybody who has been bereaved, no matter how the person died or how long ago the loss was. You can email this service using firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and number and somebody will get back to you.
