The University Mental Health Charter was created in recognition that a large number of students experience poor mental health and well-being.
Transition into higher education can present many challenges and students can benefit from the right help and support to enable them to achieve their academic goals.
Students can experience overwhelm, disorganisation, homesickness, stress in relation to coursework and exams, financial challenges, relationship issues, poor sleep and difficulty making decisions in relation to their course and direction.
The stresses and strains can lead to low mood, anxiety, depression and poor performance.
I am a Well-Being Coach with many years' experience in mental health as a qualified Social Worker. I have experience working with students as a practice educator and mentor. Through coaching methods, I can support students to overcome the following challenges:
* Managing conflict
* Deciding on direction
*Dealing with overwhelm
* Coping with difficult emotions
* Negative self-talk and limiting beliefs
* Developing confidence and assertiveness
* Establishing positive structure and routine
