Coping with Bereavement and Loss

Thursday 9 March, 2pm – 4pm

This in-person workshop is for any UAL student who has experienced a bereavement. Attending this session can help you to explore your own experience of bereavement. You will learn more about what healthy grieving can look like.

Everyone’s journey through grieving is different. This workshop will allow you to learn about some of the common experiences of bereavement. You may find it helpful to meet other students who have also experienced loss.

The workshop is facilitated by a counsellor and a chaplain from UAL’s Counselling, Health Advice and Chaplaincy service. Our aim is to support you in a mindful way, recognising that this is a sensitive topic.

This event is for currently enrolled UAL students only.

Free booking via Eventbrite

Further details about the workshop, including room location at the UAL High Holborn building, will then be emailed to you closer to the time. For any questions please contact

Art therapy: Affected by War and Conflict

5 workshops exploring the impact of war with other UAL students

provided by Counselling, Health Advice and Chaplaincy service for currently enrolled UAL students

Wednesdays 18, 25 January and 1, 8 and 15 February, 5pm – 7pm
at 272 High Holborn, London WC1V 7EY

‘Have you been affected by war? Has war impacted your life, or that of others that you know and love? Perhaps your family, friends or someone that you work with? Please join our safe, confidential and supportive group to be held sensitively over 5 weeks, to meet with other UAL students experiencing war or conflict in their lives. Reflect together. Listen to one another, hear their experiences, share and voice your own if you feel able.

We encourage the creation of artwork in our sessions, especially if your experience of war may be difficult to put into words, or you cannot express in words how you feel. Artwork may be created individually or created collaboratively as a group. Or if you prefer, you are welcome to just listen within this art therapy healing space.

This 5 session group, held in person at the High Holborn building, will involve the same group of people meeting each week to work together therapeutically. Out of respect for fellow group members, please ensure that you can commit to attending all of the dates before signing up.’
