The well-being focus for this term is Resilience. Each week there will be a different strategy posted to help us build resilience.

1. Take care of yourself: Maximise your energy levels and well-being. Get enough sleep, eat healthy food, drink water, exercise regularly and see a doctor if you are unwell. Use your breaks well. Find ways to relax and de-stress. Recognise your limits. Breathe deeply. Stretch. Enjoy good music. Get creative. Be kind to yourself. Work difficult things through with those you trust or see a counsellor or your doctor.

You can get in touch with me via email: or there are forms and a drop box outside my office near L2. There is also a copy of my timetable on my office door so you can see what times I have set aside for counselling. We do have options for you to get help you need here on the coast and can explore those with you.
