Groups and workshops

Our Service offers students the opportunity to attend short-term groups or workshops, and work individually but alongside other students who may feel similarly, which can be an empowering and unifying experience.  All our groups and workshops are “closed”, which means only students who have been referred by their assessing therapist can attend.


Personal Empowerment (PEMP) Group

Our PEMP group runs once a term for four sessions over a five week period, and is aimed at students who experience emotions intensely, and feel repeatedly stuck or overwhelmed.  The group supports students to start building resilience and emotional regulation by gaining a deeper understanding of themselves, developing the strength to embrace emotional difficulties, and move forward with new perspectives and stronger coping strategies. 

Feedback received for our PEMP group:

“Being able to discuss and debate things but also not being alone”

“Being able to connect with others”

“The handouts are really good, the facilitators are incredible. This has been really helpful having advice from people my own age”

“The exchange with others and safe feeling in the group. Honesty about problems shared”

“Please know that you have both made a huge difference to me and my mental health”


Group and workshop referral

Referral to our groups and workshops is via an assessment appointment.  If you are interested in attending either of the above, please refer into our Service via your College Wellbeing Officer or complete our online self-referral form.  If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us.
