The Counselling and mental health service are delivering a series of workshops online in August, which are available to all students. These have been tailored in response to the challenges COVID-19 poses in looking after our mental health and wellbeing.
The sessions will tackle a variety of issues, focusing around reducing anxiety, stress, and low mood.
The sessions will include live Zoom workshops of the following sessions:
- Mindfulness Meditation
- Approaching Reassessment with Calm and Focus
- Thriving in your post-graduate studies
- Hypnotherapy Skills for Stress
- Busting low mood behaviour: one step at a time
- Challenging unhelpful thinking habits
- Managing anxiety
The live online workshops will be facilitated by a member of the Counselling and Mental Health Service via Zoom. The facilitators will mute your audio and video – you will be able to see the facilitator and ask any questions using the chat facility but you will not be able to communicate or see the other participants.
The counselling service has also introduced a new online programme to tackle ‘Unhelpful thinking habits‘, which is a recorded workshop and is accessible 24/7. This workshop will focus on how we fall into unhelpful thinking habits, and how this can make situations worse than they should be. The session will consider some more helpful alternative responses, and how you can practise these.
To take a look at the full programme of events and register for one of the sessions, visit the Counselling and mental health service website. Once you have booked your place, you will receive an email with the link to access the session.
