As a student, you may well find yourself experiencing difficulties that affect your mental wellbeing. Any such difficulties might be related to issues and events whilst at university or they might be connected to previous experiences or issues in your personal life.
If you're finding it difficult to engage with your studies once you start your course with us, or are struggling to cope more generally with any of these types of issues, you can access support through our Student Wellbeing service. We have a range of options to help support you, including staff who can offer wellbeing and counselling support, as well as online resources.
Our team of practitioners are here to support any student experiencing mental wellbeing difficulties. All students who feel they may benefit from our service can use it. Students can book appointments both in and out of term time, and our team will be able to find the right support for your circumstances.
We can offer:
- Psycho-education to support your learning and understanding of your own mental health and wellbeing.
- Anxiety and stress response work
- Cognitive behavioural interventions
- Solution focussed therapy
- Problem solving
- Positive behaviour change & motivational interviewing
- Safety planning
- Help you to access external services by referral, providing information, advocacy and support.
- Assist you to liaise with specialist agencies.
- Provide a safe listening space to talk through anything concerning you.
