Therapeutic groups

Take a look at the groups and courses you could get involved in.

PhD student group: Being a PhD student can be extremely demanding and stressful. Very often you are working alone, managing your own timetable and working hours. The LJMU PhD student group is a chance to get together with other PhD students also studying at LJMU. Facilitated by a member of the LJMU Counselling team, the group will provide an opportunity for you to share experiences and concerns. The group meets online twice monthly Tuesdays 5.30-6.30pm. For further information please contact

Bibliotherapy group (Book My Mind): This group has been developed to complement the ‘Book My Mind’ initiative. The Counselling Team in connection with Library Services and with support from the Student Union has introduced its own collection of therapeutic books. Throughout the year the Counselling Service will host online/face to face group events focusing on a particular book/subject. You do not need to have read the book to attend. This group will be a way of exploring your feelings around a particular book/subject with a chance to voice your thoughts and an opportunity to provide support to others. Where appropriate some groups may also be attended by members of local organisations/community. For further information on the group please contact and for further information on ‘Book My Mind’ please visit our bibliotherapy page. To book a place please see SAW Events (
