The life of a college or university student is often a busy one. As a college student, you are committed to keeping up with your educational responsibilities, your home and family life, your daily necessities, and at the same time, you are determined to still have a life! Sometimes it can be quite tiring to endure the daily and weekly stress that is experienced as a student of higher education.
If the stress and pressures of college life (e.g., studying, passing courses, peparing presentations) are wearing on you, know that there is help available for you, while you complete your studies. You are not alone in the fear, anxiety, tension, and sometimes, frustration, that is experienced as you pursue your dreams via the higher education path. Stressors are experienced by students at all levels of their college educations.
Let's work together in therapy as we explore ways to uncover the source of your college-related stressors and possibly other issues. Many times, the emotional difficulties that arise for students as they are completing the requirements for their degrees are connected to unresolved emotions from situations that have occurred in the past. College is sometimes the place where students are faced with the need to finally address some of the underlying problems in their lives--problems that were never addressed before.
Some of college-related issues that you will be able to explore in therapy include:
- Performance-related depression and anxiety
- Family-related stressors during college
- Financial stressors during college
- Past personal issues and your present situation
- Learning disorders in the college setting
- Relationship issues while completing your education
By working through these and other issues in therapy, you can develop useful tools that will help you make the most of your remaining college experience.
