Pastoral Support and Wellbeing

Helping you to take care of yourself is a priority for us.  We know you might sometimes need help when things are becoming difficult or you just feel you could benefit from talking to someone in confidence.

  • Friendship/relationship issues
  • Worries about academic pressure/tests/exams
  • Family problems - relationships at home/illness/separation
  • Mental/emotional/physical health concerns
  • Dealing with stress
  • Emotional support
  • Worries about friend/s
  • Concerns about the future and your next steps
  • Advice on where to get more help
  • Making referrals to other support services
  • Speaking to academic staff on your behalf
  • Directing you to online resources and tools
  • Anything else you might want to talk about

You can either drop into the office to make an appointment or email
