Resilience Coaches & Counselling
Are you feeling low? Finding it hard to cope? Don’t suffer in silence – we’re here to help.
Our Resilience Coaches help learners identify and overcome barriers to learning. They offer either bespoke one to one sessions, or group sessions, to help explore strategies and techniques which enable learners to develop resilience and have a positive and fulfilling college experience.
They can also refer you to other support services, including Counsellors.
Resilience Coaches work with FE Full Time and Part Time Learners, HE and WBL learners by helping students to engage, develop and progress in college through 1-1 support.
They support students to identify and overcome mental health, emotional and well-being barriers that may prevent them from active engagement while in college.
Through bespoke 1-1 work, Resilience Coaches can support students to build coping strategies for anxiety, confidence building, relationships, self-esteem, etc.
By working closely with Tutors, Progress Coaches, Student Services Advisors, HE, WBL, Safeguarding and other college staff they ensure a high standard of support is offered to our students.
They can also make referrals for learners to the Mental Health and Wellbeing Practitioner, ALN department, Safeguarding, Counsellors and External Organisations if students need extra support..
