Students and anxiety

Anxiety can affect anyone at any time, however, students often experience additional pressure during their time of study making school, college and university seem very daunting. This can be especially so if you have moved out of your family home and are living in a new area. Because of this, we have a range of support available to students experiencing anxiety:

Student membership & therapy

We provide a discounted membership for students in full time education and living independently. The cost of this membership is just £30 for the year. See all the benefits of membership and how to sign up here.


Once you have signed up to a student membership you can access our therapy services at a flat rate of £20 per session. We can provide therapy online, over the phone or face-to-face, if there is a therapist available in your area. Read more about therapy here.

Student support groups

We know that exam time is a particularly difficult period for students. We host student-specific online support groups and relaxation sessions that take place in May and December. Dates and times will be detailed nearer the time.

If you are a current member why not connect with other students on our members’ message board? Head to the members’ area and log in to read and post.

Because of this, we have a range of support available to students experiencing anxiety:

Fresher’s fairs and wellbeing events

If you have an upcoming student event and would like some information on Anxiety UK, we can provide booklets and may be able to arrange for a representative to host a stand to talk to students about the support available through Anxiety UK. Contact [email protected] for further info.
