Wellbeing Service at QMU
If you’re struggling or facing particular difficulties which are affecting your wellbeing, mood or behaviour, don’t panic - we can help! The Wellbeing service can provide positive support, information, and advice on key issues. Why not book an appointment or come to a drop-in session, and we can have a chat about it.
What do people come to the Wellbeing service for?
All sorts of things! It varies
hugely, from stress and anxiety management, relationship difficulties, mental
health issues, or difficulty juggling the stressors of student life. Anything
which affects your physical or mental wellbeing.
How do I book an appointment?
Our new Appointment booking system can be found here: https://studentcentral.qmu.ac.uk/. Appointments are 30 – 45 minutes long and an opportunity to explore any issues or problems you are facing, and refer you to relevant resources and support networks. We can also make a plan and set goals for how to keep yourself well and develop positive coping strategies and improved self-care. All appointments are fully confidential and non-judgemental.
What are the drop-in sessions?
You can speak to any advisor in Student Services, Monday - Friday, 9.30am - 4.30pm and the Wellbeing Advisor is also available for drop-ins - please see Student Central for updates.
Where are you located?
The Wellbeing service is located
within Student Services (First floor, behind glass partition). There is a
private wellbeing office and counselling office, and everything is
confidential. Just let the receptionist know you are there for a Wellbeing
appointment. You can also check-in for appointments using the "I'm here" function in your Student Central app on arrival in the reception area.
What else do you do?
We run ongoing workshops and groups to help you manage issues like Stress and Anxiety, Self-esteem and low confidence, and how to look after yourself during exam time. Keep an eye on the ‘Wellbeing Events’ section of the website and Student Central for any upcoming workshops.
We are also running a 6-week course called ‘Stress Control’ which is run by a CBT therapist and starts on Friday 25th January. It features 6 stand-alone sessions on Stress and Anxiety, and practical tips for how to manage this. It is a lecture-based course, using in the NHS, and you do not have to speak or share anything in the group.
