Groups & Workshops


Group Counseling is a confidential service provided to all eligible students. Therapy groups are often limited to a maximum of 12 people; once therapy has begun the group is closed. Closed groups with a small number of participants allows for trust building and group cohesion, thus allowing groups to be therapeutic.

How to Sign Up

Groups are not drop-ins and fill up quickly; please contact the group facilitator prior to the start of the group session to ensure space is still available and that the group will meet your needs.

    A koru, the spiral shape of the unfurling fern frond, is the natural representation of the balance between perpetual growth and stability.
  This workshop series offers skills in Mindfulness and Meditation, which offer the type of growth symbolized by the koru.  Beyond simply decreasing your stress, this course offers approaches and skills to help you find more satisfaction in your daily life. The course, consisting of 4 classes, is designed to help you learn mindfulness through the practice of specific skills that calm and focus your mind; and through the practice of meditation. If you are feeling pressured and stressed, or just interested in learning a new skill that can enrich your life, these classes are for you!  This group will meet in Student Health and Counseling Services, 2nd Floor of the WELL
