Staff Counselling Service Wellbeing Group for Postdocs - starts 12 October

last modified Sep 25, 2018 02:12 PM
The Staff Counselling Service would like to offer you an opportunity to join their Wellbeing Group for Postdocs.

The group will run for four sessions on Fridays at 12:45, from 12th October to 2nd November.

The Postdoc Wellbeing Group, which has been specifically designed to support you, aims to work on developing your own inner resources and look at strategies for increasing a general sense of wellbeing.

Each session will consist of opening and closing meditation and/or simple breathing practice. You will have a chance to learn and practice these as an effective way of soothing the nervous system and calming the mind.

The group will then discuss a different theme every week linked to one’s sense of wellbeing.

Amongst other topics, it will look at negative self-talk, psychological self-care strategies and how to manage our emotions.

No prior experience of meditation is required and you will not be expected to share any personal information or experiences with other group members.

The sessions will be at the Staff Counselling Service, 1st Floor, 17 Mill Lane and will last 45-50 minutes.

Please email or phone 01223 762160 and specify that you would like to join the Postdoc Wellbeing Group. 

IMPORTANT PLEASE NOTE: Due to the nature of the sessions, the group are unable to admit latecomers. Please therefore arrange to arrive in good time; there is a waiting room.
