GTC Peer Supporters
Our GTC Peer Supporters are students at Green Templeton who are happy to talk with GTC students about anything that is concerning them. Often it can help simply to get things off your chest or to know that someone is willing to listen and take time to understand what's on your mind.
Each of our Peer Supporters has received 30 hours of training by the University Counselling Service.
