Maynooth University Counselling Service 

The Counselling Service is a professional, confidential service, which is available to all registered students of the University and is provided free of charge. The Service offers one-to-one counselling and support on a wide range of psychological and mental health issues, as well as academic, family and social concerns, any of which may impact on your personal health and well-being or academic performance.

The Counselling Service Team would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to Maynooth University. If you are returning to college or a new student to the University - our Service is here to support you. We hope that you will feel well connected and very much part of the college community over the next academic year.

The transition to college can be challenging and given the difficulties people have experienced over the past few months it is understandable that this new phase or experience might be stressful. If you are finding your transition back / to college difficult please get in touch with us. It can be helpful to talk with someone confidentially if you have any worries or concerns. A phone call or a Call-back request will link you in with the Service straight away.

The Counselling Service is offering both face to face sessions and phone consultations this semester. Please feel free to indicate what would suit you best.

All sessions with the Service are by appointment only for the foreseeable future. There is no facility to drop into the Service without an appointment. Please contact Reception for assistance.
