Venue: Online

Book your place

Are you a Foundation Course student returning to study after a break, or perhaps later in life?

Are you the first in your family to go on to higher education?

Have you had a difficult time in education previously?

Do you worry that you won't belong at university?

If the answer to any of these questions is "yes", the Birkbeck Counselling Service is offering a four-part online Reflective Group incorporating 20-minute workshop presentations on Anxiety, Resilience and Confidence followed by 40 minutes of supportive, reflective space in which you can share your concerns and experiences with fellow students.

Students are required to sign up for the whole series of four sessions in order to create a supportive group which can foster increasing resilience and confidence over the first term of study.

The four workshops are as follows:

Managing Anxiety - 6th November 2023

Building Resilience - 20th November 2023

Growing Confidence - 4th December 2023

Moving Forward - 15th January 2024

The Reflective Group will be facilitated by Jo Myddelton, who is a Senior Counsellor and the Therapeutic Groups Co-ordinator in the Birkbeck Counselling Service.

Students sign up to all sessions as one even via My Birkbeck and are expected to attend all four in order to courage an ongoing conversation, reflection and development. Ahead of the first session you will receive an email with guidance for what is expected in the group. The sessions will take place online via Microsoft Teams.
