Workshops (PDF, 188 KB) for the summer term 2013. Flyers are available from Student Counselling, and copies are sent to academic schools and support services prior to the start of each term.
The Workshop Programme is designed to give students an opportunity to get together and interact with each other in furthering their own and others' understanding of specific topics. Through small group discussions and individual and group exercises you will have the opportunity to share experiences, as well as to learn and practice new skills. Different workshops are offered each term.
Each workshop is facilitated by members of the Student Counselling Service. Workshops are single events on specific topics, each lasting for 1½ hours.
Pre-booking is strongly recommended as places are limited.
The following workshops will take place in the Summer term 2013:
Self Esteem: The Mirror On Myself
Wednesday 24 April, 1.45 – 3.15pm

Dragging your Feet

Procrastination is one of the greatest struggles students face in completing their work. Learn how you can overcome ambivalence and get the job done. Attendance at this relaxation group can count towards your BristolPlus award application with the University.
All workshops will take place in the Student Services Seminar Room at Hampton House, St Michael’s Hill. This has a different entrance to the Student Counselling Service, and shares the entrance with the Disability Services.
Instead of entering through the main glass doors of Hampton House, walk around the side of the building and walk down the driveway and follow signs for Disability Services. Follow the driveway around to the left, where you will see a car park on your left. Walk across the car park and up the ramp on your left, which will take you to the entrance of the Student Seminar Room. Press number 2 on the intercom, and somebody will open the door for you.
