Coping with Uni & Student Life
Going to Uni is supposed to be the ‘time of your life’ but for many, the reality is quite different. Struggling to cope? Feeling the pressure? Finding social situations or relationships challenging? Worried about drug or alcohol use or other addictions? Relying on unhealthy coping mechanisms? Feeling isolated and alone?
Stress & Anger
Are you living with an anxious, heavy, closing-in feeling of dread, squeezing you so tightly you feel like exploding or escaping?

If you're under a tremendous amount of pressure, maybe culminating in angry outbursts, this course can help.
Do you spend an excessive amount of time worrying about a particular aspect of your appearance? Are you very unhappy with your body? Obsess about the way you look?

Are you constantly comparing yourself to others in ways that leave you feeling terrible?
Do you struggle with addictive behaviour? Do you want to stop because you recognise it's not good for you, but seem unable to change? Are you engaging in behaviours or seeking instant gratification in ways that are damaging your life, relationships, your finances or your work?
Do you struggle with emotions, whether understanding, expressing or controlling them? Would you like to become more emotionally intelligent? Does it feel your emotions are ruling your life rather than you being in control? Do your emotions seem inappropriate for given situations? Perhaps you experience emotional numbness or a stunted ability to feel certain emotions at all?
Do you have issues with food and eating? Do you turn to food as a coping mechanism by either restricting, over-eating or bingeing? Are you extremely controlled about your eating habits? Or conversely do you feel out of control? Do you struggle to maintain a healthy weight? Perhaps you have compulsive thoughts or behaviours around food? Think you have issues with food or might be suffering from an eating disorder?

Loneliness & Isolation
Loneliness describes a terrible, unwanted feeling of disconnection or separateness from other people. Do you long for the pleasure of other people's company and often feel sad, despairing and alone?

My Life Scripts – Schema Therapy
Schema Therapy is effective for a wide-range of emotional and psychological issues.

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
Do you feel hijacked by incessant anxious thoughts about bad things that might happen? Do you try to quieten excessive worry by attending to certain tasks repetitively, in an effort to avoid negative consequences and feel more in control? Are some of the things you do recognisably excessive or irrational and yet you can't stop yourself? Do you fixate on disturbing thoughts that won't leave you alone?
Gender & Identity
Gender identity isn’t an easy topic to understand but thankfully society is beginning to wake up and understand, slowly getting rid of old ideas about what gender is really about.
