We aim to support you with advice and information to promote wellness and a positive outlook and lifestyle. We offer a practical approach to working through problems, focussed on information-giving, self-help strategies, action-planning and goal-setting.
We offer 30-minute Wellbeing appointments (to apply, please complete our online Self-Referral Form) where students can work one-to-one with a member of the team to tackle issues such as stress and anxiety, depression, homesickness, academic problems, grief, eating disorders, low self-esteem, cultural difficulties, or any other problems you may bring.
We will work with you to identify specific strategies to try out, and then offer the opportunity for you to return to review your progress.
We aim to offer as much flexibility to students as possible, and our appointments are available through a variety of mediums:
- Online, via e-mail, Instant Messaging or Web Cam
The Team offers ‘Wellbeing Walk-In’, a daily drop-in Service, where you are invited to turn up without an appointment, to chat to a member of the team for 10-15 minutes, to ask for advice, pick up a leaflet, borrow a self-help book (either hard copy or e-book format), or find out more about the support we offer and how to go about booking an appointment.
Wellbeing Walk in is available face to face at the following times and locations:
- Monday – Friday, 15:00-15:45, 50 Park Place (First Floor)
- Wednesday morning, 09.30-10:15, 50 Park Place (First Floor)
- Heath Park Campus will also hold a drop in service from September 2014 (details to be confirmed)
You can also access our virtual walk in by using our Instant Messenger service. Just type into the ‘Ask our Student Wellbeing Team Live’ form and we will respond. We are normally online at the following times:
- Monday - Friday, 11:00-13:00
We know how hectic a student timetable can be, so we regularly bring our services to you! A ‘Wellbeing Hotspot’ is a chance to get some wellbeing advice on the move. The Team regularly hits the street, visiting various popular locations on Campus such as libraries, Halls of Residence, Cafes and study rooms, where you can meet us, learn about the support available, ask for advice, pick up some self-help materials or speak to a member of the team privately.
Hotspots are a chance for you to:
- Get to know your Student Wellbeing Team
- Learn about your wellbeing and how to improve it
- Ask how to refer yourself for support
- Share your worries about someone else
- Take away some self-help resources
- Take our quick Wellbeing Quiz
