Trev’s Times – WEEK TWENTY-THREE

Happy Bank Holiday Monday, Furness! Here is your Roses recovery news…

Exam de-stress sessions

The Counselling and Mental Health Service are going to be running some exam de-stress/support sessions throughout the summer term at both 8:30am and 1pm for 30 minutes each and these will take place in the Chaplaincy.

These are bite-sized, stress and exam support on in the mornings and afternoons and this will commence from Tuesday 7th May until 19th June (with the expectation of 20th May, 23rd May and 10th June).

Morning sessions would be based on getting in the ‘right mind-set’ but with added focus on procrastination or breathing techniques. The afternoon slots would be ‘exam de-stress’ which students can drop in to, for anyone worried, or panic pre or post exam.

30 Minute Clinic

A new 30 Minute Clinic, will be running most Wednesdays (nb:  not 8th May) throughout the Summer Term.  Shelagh Milligan, from the Counselling and Mental Health Team, will be offering brief, solution-focused appointments.
