Our Wellness Consultants provide a safe and confidential space to support learners in resolving personal issues that may be interfering with their wellness and learning.  If you are experiencing high levels of distress, our Wellness Consultants will make every effort to see you within 2 working days.

Please note
There is one Wellness Consultant assigned to each of the three units in the Faculty of Medicine: for UGME/Dentistry, PGME and Schools- Please book with your corresponding Wellness consultant. The evening Wellness Advisor is assigned to all learners.
When you book an appointment with a Wellness Consultant/Advisor, they will become your on-going person of contact for future sessions. Therefore, kindly book follow-up appointments with the same person, unless a permanent switch to another Consultant/Advisor proves necessary.
