The student counselling service has the following upcoming groups:

Procrastination

This 4 week online group run by Scott Ahearn, the procrastinator-in-chief, may be suitable for you if your work is piling up, you feel overwhelmed with academic tasks, you don’t know where to start or you lack motivation.

When: Weekly for 4 weeks starting Thursday February 16th 5.30pm to 6.30 pm

Dates: February 16th, 23rd, March 2nd and 9th

Where: via Microsoft Teams.  

How: Book a place

The group aims to provide tips and tools to tackle procrastination, as well as increase your understanding of procrastination. We hope to provide you with a chance to develop your own procrastination action plan and provide a non-judgemental and light-hearted space to discuss procrastination.

The group holds open discussions about procrastination. You can keep your mic and camera on or off – whatever if more comfortable for you (from our experience you may get more from the group if you keep them on – no pressure!)

V5 Values and Fitness

  • The V5 is a program that improves your everyday life. It focuses on how you can improve your mental health, physical health, relationships, career and grades, and even your hobbies.

Anxiety Support Group
