Safeguarding at Shrewsbury Colleges Group - Coronavirus Update
During the period when the majority of students are not in college it is very important to us that we are still able to support you to stay safe and access support from college
At College we believe in promoting the emotional health and wellbeing of everyone. Having the choice to access support when you need it can make all the difference to your College experience. We all need support from time to time and our Emotional Health and Wellbeing service is open to all students. Every worry is important, no matter how small you think it is or that there is someone worse off than you. Please get in touch, we are here to support you.
The Emotional Health & Well-being Team
It is important to recognise that we all have individual needs, which is why we have such a diverse collection of services on offer to help facilitate your emotional growth and wellbeing.
For Students who wish to explore their thoughts and feelings in a confidential and non-judgemental environment. Using a person-centred approach, you can work through a variety of issues which include depression, relationships, home life and sexuality.
A weekly appointment will be arranged for you to see one of our Counsellors. Counselling usually lasts between 6-8 weeks, but this can be discussed between you and your counsellor. The aim is to give you the space to come to terms with, accept and move forward with your life without carrying your troubles with you.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
You will meet on a weekly, one to one basis for between 6-8 sessions of CBT. You will look at thought processes, achieve goals and learn new ways of coping with things.
As with all therapy, the outcomes are dependant on your engagement with it. CBT is about looking at the way you think, affecting the way you feel and behave. It is goal orientated and will contain worksheets and coping tools. Anger and anxiety are two examples of areas that CBT can be used to help find ways forward.
