Students with Disabilities and Long-Term Conditions

The Wellbeing Team can also help students with disabilities or long-term conditions with matters such as applying for adjustments to learning or applying for Disabled Students’ Allowance.

We can provide support for students with: 

  • Specific learning difficulties e.g. dyslexia, ADHD
  • Autism spectrum disorders e.g. asperger's 
  • Mobility impairments

Student Mental Health

We understand that there can be many different pressures that can affect you whilst studying at university, therefore we feel that it is extremely important that our students feel supported during their studies at Point Blank. If you feel stressed, homesick, lonely or are dealing with more long-term issues, please get in touch with The Wellbeing Team. They will arrange to meet with you to have a chat and determine how they can help you. Support can also be provided through help with time management, academic writing support and prioritising workloads. They can also provide further information about our free counselling service or, if appropriate, how to pause your studies.

Counselling Service

If you are studying in London and experiencing difficulties and you would like to speak to someone professional, you may be able to arrange an appointment with our student counsellor. Counselling is a form of therapy whereby you are encouraged to talk about your problems and emotions. In the sessions, the counsellor will not advise you what to do but will listen to you and will help you to find ways of coping with your feelings.  Counselling can help you deal with a number of problems and struggles that you might face such as troubling life events, physical or mental health conditions, stress or other difficult emotions. In the sessions you will be encouraged to explore the problems you are having and find ways to gain a better understanding of your feelings and actions and help you to find your own solutions to problems, developing the ability to cope with difficulties you may be experiencing. In addition, counselling will help you find your own resources and support you will need to cope with difficulties that you might face in the future. To find out more about our counselling service, please contact The Wellbeing Team.
