Health and Wellbeing

Within the Health and Wellbeing Team, we provide a range of free and confidential services to help with any practical, emotional, or mental health conditions that you might be experiencing, which are impacting upon your studies or student life. 

We can offer; informal wellbeing advice, exploring a range of topics from healthy eating to homesickness, confidential counselling to help you to explore difficult thoughts and feelings and tailored mental health support if you have any long standing mental health issues.
The support that we provide will usually be offered within LCoM, but sometimes a referral to an external agency or advice around self-help materials might be more helpful to you. 

We can work with you to identify what type of support would best meet your needs during your time with us.

If you are a current or prospective student and would like to discuss any specific support needs or concerns about your wellbeing, then please don’t hesitate to get in touch.


The Conservatoire's Learning Support Centre is available to all students and provides services including help with reading, writing, numeracy and literacy skills, time management and organisation, and support in researching and completing assignments.
Free specialist diagnostic assessment for dyslexia is also available.
