Counselling for University Students
Does the university workload seem impossible or unreasonable?
Does balance seem impossible?
Do larger interpersonal issues or societal issues seem on a collision course with your university experience?
We’re here to help you navigate university life while not losing sight of the rest of life.
University can feel like an environment of never-ending assignments, deadlines, difficult roommates or friends or faculty, and possibly complicated issues back home. It can feel like a constant strain on your mental health, and sometimes doesn’t feel like what you signed up for.
Navigating the pressure, complex interpersonal relationships, and thinking about the future is not an easy task. Add in pressure from society and parents as well as expectations we put on ourselves and it is no wonder that so many students experience struggles during this time of life.
At Spacious Mind Counselling we have helped countless university students adjust to and benefit more from the student experience. We have firsthand experience, and we offer a non-judgmental space to explore both commonplace topics and bigger-picture issues, like anxiety, depression, gender identity, relationships, sexual orientation, biases, social oppression, and COVID.
If you’re a university student and you don’t want to feel on-edge all the time and would like to work out some issues sooner rather than later, contact Guelph therapist Shane Smyth or Jane Kraft to book a complimentary discussion. We are available for virtual (online) counseling sessions.
