Culturally sensitive counselling

Free counselling available from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic-led therapy service

Culturally sensitive counselling is available to Bath students under an agreement with Nilaari, a Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic-led charity in Bristol with 20 years’ experience of providing talking therapies.

Counselling from Nilaari is an addition to the range of other talking therapies and mental health support offered at Bath – students always have the choice whether or not they want to self-refer to Nilaari if they would like to access this support. If you’d rather access in-house support services, please get in touch with us via the Student Support Advice Team.

The provision of this service follows discussions between the University's Therapeutic Services team and Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic students as an appropriate way to provide culturally-sensitive therapeutic input for students who wish to access this.

Students can receive up to six free counselling sessions from Nilaari, with professionally qualified and registered counsellors.

As a trusted partner, Nilaari have committed to working alongside with the University to keep private information about students safe and secure, but will contact Student Support at the University of Bath if they have significant concerns for your welfare.
