All students and staff can now access a simple mental skills training programme which teaches you how to calm your mind and develop a positive mindset, enabling greater emotional resilience to deal more effectively with challenges of everyday life.

What is Feeling Good?

The app contains a safe, effective, and non-stigmatising programme, Positive Mental Training, which is widely used within the NHS for increasing wellbeing and recovery from stress, worry, and low mood.

Feeling Good’s mind-body programme is derived from Olympic sports psychology and guides you through a set of 12 physical and mental exercises. This allows you to switch to a positive state of mind, letting go of the negative emotional triggers which underpin distress, whilst simultaneously increasing your concentration and focus. You do not have to complete all 12 exercises in order to feel a difference; benefits are reported within the first few weeks of listening.

What are the benefits of the app?

  • Immediately helps calm the body and mind
  • Rapidly promotes deeper sleep and concentration
  • Aids recovery from mental distress
  • Develops all-round mental wellbeing
  • Different to mindfulness as it combines physical relaxation with positive outcome-focused visualisations
  • NHS-accredited
