Roles and responsibilities

I joined Student Wellbeing here at Newcastle University in 2011 and work 1:1 with students who come for help with a wide variety of struggles. I tailor my approach to meet their individual needs and goals.

I also work as a mediator to help University members who are in conflict resolve their problems collaboratively.

My colleague Kate Aitchinson and I co-facilitate a psychoeducational group called 'Butterflies and Knots, How to Cope with Anxiety'. This is a well established group and runs each term. It provides a CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy)and Mindfulness approach to help students understand and better manage their stress and anxiety, as well as develop good, all-round life skills.
