Workshop descriptions

Being Outdoors

In these workshops we will use our sensory awareness of nature to support our wellbeing.  

Participants will be supported to explore the campus and to be curious about how our environment can support our sense of well-being and manage symptoms of depression, anxiety and stress.

You can attend one or more workshops.  

 
Building Resilience

We all face challenging situations from time to time. Increasing your capacity to deal with adversity and learn from your experiences will help you both at university and beyond.

This workshop is designed to build on your existing resources and provide you with strategies for boosting your resilience. 

 
Explore Mindfulness

With practice, Mindfulness can help you let go of anxiety and focus on the present.

This workshop provides an introduction to Mindfulness with information on resources and apps for further practice. 

 
Improve Your Self Esteem

Are you self-critical?
Do you constantly compare yourself with others?
Does a lack of self-confidence stop you making the most of your time here?

This workshop gives you an opportunity to gain a new perspective on the way you see yourself.

 
Manage Depression and Low Mood

Practical tips and strategies for managing the effects of low mood and depression on studying, socialising and all aspects of your day-to-day life.

 
Manage Perfectionism

Do you set yourself unrealistic and unachievable standards?
Does this impact your academic progress and general wellbeing?

This workshop will help you to understand and tackle these issues.

 
Manage Procrastination

A tendency to delay starting on tasks often goes hand-in-hand with perfectionism.

Come along to this workshop to get some practical tips for identifying and managing these difficulties.

 
Managing Anxiety and Stress

A series of workshops providing practical tips and new ways of thinking to help you cope with stress.

You may attend a single workshop or come back for more.
