College Counsellor

You are here

Homerton College provides a confidential counselling service for all undergraduate and postgraduate students. Counselling offers you an opportunity to talk over any troubling issues in a private and relaxed setting with someone who plays no other role in your college life. If you have a personal or work-related problem or if you are feeling unhappy, anxious or depressed, we encourage you to contact the College Counsellor, Catherine Snelson.

Catherine trained as a psychotherapist with the Cambridge Society for Psychotherapy. During her training she worked at the University Counselling Service. She is a registered member of UKCP (UK Council for Psychotherapy) and is bound by and adheres to the ethical framework of both the Cambridge Society for Psychotherapy and the UKCP. She is also a trained CRUSE bereavement counsellor.

What happens

At the first meeting, we will talk through the issues concerning you. You can then decide whether further counselling is the best way forward. Some people find one or two sessions helpful, whilst others decide they would like to come for further sessions over a period of weeks. Sessions usually last for 50 minutes and are usually weekly but can be flexible when needed. I can offer help and support in a wide range of issues such as eating disorders, bereavement, self-harming, relationship difficulties, work and study stress, or home-sickness. Meetings are confidential and information is not shared without your permission, except in very extreme circumstances where your safety or the safety of others is at risk.

I see students in my room, CAV G11, which is accessed via the black door in the garden opposite the Cavendish south doors. I am in College on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays and you can book an appointment by emailing me on cs780@cam.ac.uk. I may not always be able to see you immediately, so while you are waiting you may find one of the topic-specific groups run by the University Counselling Service, or their self-help leaflets (which can be accessed online) extremely helpful in the short term.
