Support and guidance sessions for staff

Uncertain times are a source of concern for many in the University community. For some, this concern can manifest in increased levels of stress and anxiety which can have knock-on effects at work and home. The University is committed to providing support and assistance to our staff who may be feeling a degree of stress or anxiety.

The Staff Counselling Centre are running four 60-minute sessions designed to provide support and practical guidance on managing stress. In these times of uncertainty, it is more important than ever to prioritise our mental health, to recognise when we and others are struggling, and to find strategies to help us manage its impact. This talk will put stress and anxiety in context and offer ways in which to think about and manage their effect on us both physiologically and mentally.

The presenter Ashley Meggitt MSc is an associate lecturer and research psychologist working at Anglia Ruskin University. He holds a master's degree in psychology and is studying for his PhD. He spent 25 years of his first career working within the Cambridge University and College environment and is well versed with many of the challenges this brings. He has also spent the last 5 years volunteering for a mental health charity.
