As part of Mental Health Awareness Week, ACM are proud to announce the launch of our wellbeing podcasts – a toolbox of guides to aid mental and emotional wellness. The podcasts have been created by Kate our wellbeing advisor at ACM Guildford, who specialises in performance anxiety coaching and confidence related issues.
Kate is also available for 1:1s all day on Friday 17th May (book in through student services), and also runs a performance anxiety workshop during term time on Fridays from 12.30-1.30pm over at the Billings in Guildford.
Our podcasts aim to educate listeners on a range of techniques to help keep anxiety and stress to a minimum. From creating mental visual aids to tuning into your mind and body, browse through our range of mental health podcasts below and give them a listen via Canvas!
1) Before, During & After Care
Combat social and performance anxiety with our 20 minute podcast that guides listeners through the before, during and after care of important life events. Take to the stage, attend interviews and complete exams with the emotional and mental confidence needed to ensure your greatest performance.
2) Body Scan
Define the difference between tension and relaxation, fall into an easier sleep, and altogether, feel less anxious with our “body scanning” podcast.
3) Comma Meditation
Find it difficult getting into a relaxed state of mind? Set aside a moment of your day to tune into your mind and body by listening to this meditation podcast. For only 5 minutes, make sure you’re somewhere where you can’t be disturbed, headphones in, and feel the relaxation run through you.
4) Visualisation Exercise
Sit back, find a quiet space and follow along with the slow, meditative sounds of our visualisation exercise podcast. This exercise teaches listeners to focus on their breathing whilst visualising relaxing environments to help set the mind at ease, all within a short 10 minutes.
If you’re struggling with your mental health or wellbeing please do not hesitate to contact student services at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 01483 500 800.
