Referral to Counselling

To make a referral directly to the Counselling Service simply contact Reception on 01 708 3554. In the event of an emergency or a crisis it is important to state this on contacting the Counselling Service.

If referring a student or friend to the Service it is helpful to:

  • Discuss the referral with the student

  • Reiterate that the Counselling Service is confidential

  • Provide accurate information on how to access the Service

  • Where necessary accompany the student to the Service

Self-referral to the Counselling Service is welcomed and encouraged. No referral letter is necessary but will be accepted if relevant.

Please see our  Guidelines on Referral to the Counselling Services  for further information.

Referral to the Psychiatric Service

Referral to the Psychiatric Service is via the Counselling Service, the Student Health Centre Maynooth University, or a student’s own medical practitioner.

Please contact the Counselling Service Reception for further information regarding such referrals.
