Group and Workshop Sessions
Group sessions provide a safe space facilitated by a member of the Health and Well-Being team. This can offer a unique environment in which to learn about and experience both self and others. We all live in groups for much of our lives and working together with others in a group can provide valuable insights into characteristic patterns of thinking and relating in a group setting. The group experience gives individuals an opportunity to explore their issues in more depth, in a setting which more closely resembles work, study, social and family groupings.
Periodically Student Health and Wellbeing Team run group sessions and information will be added to this page when a group or workshop is to take place.
Examples for groups include:
- Transition to and from University
- Exam anxiety
- Stress management
- Self Esteem
- Social isolation

Feedback from past Groups...
‘I really have a lot to owe to you and the groups, and do hope that you'll be able to carry them on for other students next year.’
‘ It's good to know you’re not the only one battling with anxiety because it can feel like that sometimes! Really appreciated the opportunities you gave us to talk and share things too!’
