PBS Psychological Counseling

Studying can prove to be the most rewarding time in one’s life, however, it can also prove to be a personal challenge that can lead to emotional stress.  Students have diverse dependencies (parents, instructors, finances, etc.) when compared to non-students of the same age.  Additionally, the distance between home and place of study often leads to a loss of social belonging to one’s peer group which in turn requires the student to be proactive, have self-discipline and confidence (getting in contact, speaking freely in front of strangers, planning and fulfilling the semester plan).  Last but not least are the conditions at the institution one studies at which are often characterized by anonymity, performance demands, and a competitive culture.  These special circumstances can lead to psychological stress requiring students to seek out professional assistance.
