If you are experiencing difficulties that are challenging to your day-to-day life or that impact your general health and wellbeing, our student wellbeing advisers can support you to review current practices, and implement ways to make improvements.
In appointments, you can discuss your needs and a Student Wellbeing Adviser can make appropriate suggestions to help create a plan to improve your wellbeing. These include (but are not limited to): a sleep hygiene plan, healthy nutrition, practicing mindfulness and social engagement.
Example: After receiving lower marks than you had hoped for, you might struggle with motivation to do your next piece of academic work and find yourself in a negative cycle of leaving it to the last minute. This perpetuates some anxiety that results in further delaying the tasks and feelings of dread and failure.
