Responding to Distressed People

  • This experiential workshop aims to equip people with the skills, knowledge and confidence to support others who are experiencing distress.
  • The workshop covers active listening, boundaries and referral skills, and active participation is encouraged and facilitated.
  • It is hoped that people will gain a sense that they can feel more confident to engage with others who are in distress with a view to hearing their story, minding themselves in doing so and feeling equipped to consider suggestions they can make about where further support can be found.

Delivered by Mark Robinson: Student Counselling Service 

  • Mark joined the Student Counselling Service in 2011. He attained a Higher Diploma in Psychology and a Doctorate in Counselling Psychology, both through Trinity College Dublin. Prior to studying psychology he studied economics and philosophy to degree level. He meets with students for individual counselling as well as facilitating workshops and groups. He has gained experience working therapeutically with people of all ages from a wide variety of backgrounds and across a wide variety of settings. Mark practices as an integrative therapist drawing on humanistic, emotion-focused, psychodynamic and cognitive behavioural frameworks. He has a particular interest in how we make meaning of our experiences of painful emotion. 


  • The Student Counselling Service is located just off the main college campus, on the 3rd floor of  an office building in South Leinster Street. We are  a few doors down from the National Art Gallery and right across the road from  Insomnia Coffee Shop. To view our location on Google Maps, please click here.
