School Wellbeing Adviser

I have a degree in Social Psychology from Loughborough University and was a student here from 2009-2012. On completion of my degree I worked in various roles at Loughborough College and Loughborough University, working initially in student recruitment at Loughborough College and moving in to roles in attendance, bids and funding and learner support. I have previously worked within Campus Living at Loughborough University and my most recent role was working within the Student Experience team at Loughborough College as an Engagement Mentor, supporting students with issues relating to Substance Misuse, Sexual Health, Gender Identity, Violence and Abuse and Mental Health related issues as well as promoting health and wellbeing and being a designated duty safeguarding officer.

My role as Wellbeing Adviser:

My current role as Wellbeing Adviser is part of the Student Wellbeing and Inclusivity Service and is based within the Academic Schools. As a Wellbeing Adviser, my aim is to support students during their time at Loughborough University, working with them to help them to achieve academic, social and personal success. Students are able to access meaningful contact, in a timely manner, to receive appropriate support and signposting. As Wellbeing Adviser, I can also provide students with resources and information, enabling them to take control of their wellbeing.

I can offer advice and guidance within a safe space and with regard to a range of wellbeing issues, including, but not limited to:                                         

  • Stress
  • Low mood                   
  • Bereavement
  • Family issues
  • Relationship issues
  • Feeling overwhelmed
  • Transition to University
