A psychologist is a mental health care professional who is trained to understand the complexities of the human brain and human behaviour. They play a pivotal role in diagnosing and in turn aiding people in their mental health journeys by equipping them with the tools to overcome internal battles and be their best selves.
As young adults, students experience a lot of change and stress in their day to day lives. Not only are we navigating the ins and outs of adulthood, but we are building relationships with ourselves and others along the way. It is a tumultuous time for many as we have more responsibilities than ever before and are on the hunt to find the perfect work life balance – spoiler! there is no such thing, and that is okay.
Seeking the aid of a clinical psychologist is a very empowering step to make as a student to assist you in achieving both personal and professional goals. Mental health is an important aspect of our lives as it includes our emotional, physical, and social well-being so it is important to ensure we maintain our mental health by seeking psychological counselling, just like we exercise for our physical health.
Psychologists can help students in a multitude of ways from acting as a sounding board, to aiding stress management and assisting in ways to cope with daily anxieties.
Someone to talk to:
Psychologists in their nature are, at the end of the day, someone to talk to – whether you need to express your feelings, uncover the root of your problems, or just generally seek some guidance on ways to manifest your dreams. There’s no harm in arranging an initial psychologist appointment to see if this is the right pathway for you. Remembering that you don’t need a problem to talk to someone, sometimes you just need to start the conversation.
The life of a student is very stressful whether it be exam season, a busy work week, or an eventful social calendar, it can all get a bit much sometimes. Although there is no perfect formula to achieve work-life balance, there are definitely techniques one can implement to mitigate some of these hurdles and seeking an experienced psychologist to guide you is a good place to start. Although we are busy, access to telehealth psychology makes it all that bit easier!
Anxiety is the most common mental health condition in Australia as it has such varying degrees of severity – whether you suffer with a clinical diagnosis of generalised anxiety disorder, social anxiety, a phobia or even just day to day life anxieties, a telehealth professional is here to help.
One in four people will experience anxiety at some point in their life, and a student is one of those defining times in one’s life due to new responsibilities, relationships, and an overall change in lifestyle when transitioning form high school to university and beyond.
