Counselling groups

The Student Counselling Service runs a range of groups - some long-term, others brief and focused on a particular issue

Why Groups?

We have found that groups are a natural environment for students to think about their lives and learn how to deal with the difficulties that they experience. Time spent at university marks a period of significant transition and change for most students, no matter what age they are undertaking their studies.  Such transitions are connected with every aspect of life - the situation left behind with families and 'home' - growing up and discovering who we are, in the process of doing so - dealing with new social situations and relationships - looking forward to the roles and responsibilities which may be waiting after graduation.

It can be helpful to discover that you are not alone in experiencing difficulties, distress or confusion, to realise that others can understand you and help you to understand and that you can also be helpful to others, just by speaking about your experience.

Current Groups

  • Long-Term Counselling Groups - on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons and Friday mornings.
  • Group for Mature Students - on Thursday mornings
  • Top Tips Workshops

We run groups for students who have experienced a Bereavement. Please contact the service if you have been affected by bereavement and would like to discuss how we may provide you with help.
