Are you struggling to manage the demands of your course?

Or is anxiety, low mood or something else making it impossible to study?

Studying can be tough

Especially with the added pressure of fees, finance and everything else you have to do. If you’re feeling overwhelmed, struggling or worried you won’t get the grades, getting help now can mean success in the future.

Stress from your studies can affect all areas of your life. Leaving you feeling exhausted, overwhelmed and not quite good-enough. Add this to the pressures of being away from home, managing money, relationships and really wanting to do well – it can all feel too much.

You know this is a crucial time but that just adds to the pressure. As well as your course, you’re learning about life, yourself and trying to enjoy the experience. People say it’s the best time in your life but if you’re not feeling it, maybe it’s time to get some help.

It’s great to have a space just for yourself. I’ve learnt a lot through my therapy sessions and feel like I’ve grown as a person. Thank you.

How can counselling help with your studies?

Any kind of psychological or emotional problem can affect your ability to concentrate and motivate yourself.

Whether it’s the stress of your studies or something else in your life that’s difficult to deal with, it can takes valuable time and energy away from the things you want to focus on.

I also work with students who need therapy as part of their course.

Personal counselling can benefit your therapeutic work, increasing your awareness and self-care and helping you become a better, more resilient practitioner. It’s an opportunity to learn about yourself, deepen your relationships and work on anything that may be concerning you for greater well-being and enjoyment of life.

I have lots of experience in counselling students

Through my work with the University of South Wales, I’ve helped many students overcome a range of difficulties including exam and money pressures, anxiety, depression, eating disorders, addictions, relationship problems, concerns around sexuality and low confidence and self-esteem. You may want to check out the services tab above to see how we’d work with specific concerns.
