  • a wide range of workshops including managing anxiety; exam stress; procrastination; assertiveness; confidence and self-esteem; low mood; and speaking out in groups;
  • advise on where else to seek help within the University and make referrals to NHS mental health services.

You can access all the above services through the Counselling Services's new website, as well as a wealth of self-help nformation, including:
