What problems can we bring?
Anyone can experience thoughts and feelings that are distressing or affect their ability to concentrate on their studies. Examples of problems people seek help with through counselling are:
- academic worries/pressures
- problems arising from studies
- anxiety and depression
- panic attacks
- suicidal thoughts
- issues of sexuality
- relationship difficulties
- family problems
- eating disorders
- issues with self-esteem and confidence
This isn't an exhaustive list, but gives you some idea of the kinds of problems people can struggle with and bring to counselling. Sometimes there isn't a specific problem but you may simply want to talk about feeling confused or unhappy. You don't have to be in crisis or overwhelmed by your feelings before you ask for help. The counsellors are happy to hear about anything that may be troubling you.
Whatever your problem, you are welcome.
