Group and Workshop Timetable Lent Term 2021



The Groups and Workshops timetable for Lent Term.

We run three kinds of groups at UCS - workshops, focused groups and longer counselling groups.  The workshops are generally one-off events and do not require any ongoing commitment.  The focused groups are for people who want help with a particular issue.   Longer counselling groups offer support over a period of several weeks. To ensure a group experience, we aim to run groups and workshops of 6 participants or more and if there are insufficient numbers to run a group or workshop it may be cancelled.
