  • What is Counselling & Mental Health? An Introductory Session for Students

    Monday 1 November

    12pm to 1.20pm

    Get to know one of the services that Student Support and Wellbeing have for you to support you in your emotional journey of life through uni. Understand what it really means, what kind of support you can get, for what things it's useful and for which it's not, and how to access and refer yourself to the different services. You’ll also get space for a Q&A with the manager of the service, Counsellor Pier, to get any clarifications or doubts about the service, referral procedures, dos and don’ts, therapy, counselling, and mental health support, . Disclaimer: This is a public session, so it’s not a safe space to ask individual questions about your personal case. You can request a OneOff for a private, confidential session for that purpose.

  • The Discomfort Zone: A Presentation and Performance Workshop

    Wednesday 24 November

    2pm to 3.30pm

    Your Middlesex journey will require you to put yourself in uncomfortable and unfamiliar places, including those times you will be asked to perform or present in front of tutors and peers. What do you fear the most? What does ‘failure’ mean to you? What messages might we have received that could make us more or less afraid of the idea of ‘failing’? How do we respond to our critical voice and our self-limiting beliefs so that we develop the knowledge that when we fall down, we get up again and get stronger? Come to the workshop facilitated by our Counsellor Simone and let’s work it out.

  • Knowing Me, Knowing You

    Feeling isolated? Finding it hard to find your voice? Want to feel more connected to others and learn about yourself at the same time?

    Then this group might be for you as here, students are encouraged to share and listen to each other, and to challenge each other’s negative inner monologue.

    The group encourages the importance of being open, authentic, and recognising that it isn’t our wounds that put other’s off, but the armour we use to hide them.

    This is a closed group that runs for 12 weeks.
