Counselling for students

By: Lorraine Hackett

Updated: 09 May 2018

Counselling for students

Exam season for students in Ireland is imminent and with it comes panicked study cramming, sleepless nights, caffeine drinks on tap, weepy Whatsapps and future fears.

Student life, especially in the lead up to exams, can be wrought with immense pressure to succeed and plan for the future, and the student experience can go from zero to 10 on the Stress Rickter Scale very quickly.

One minute you’re sleeping till noon and partying all night, the next minute you’re watching the sun come up over a mountain of textbooks.

All of these pressures and expectations set by others and by ourselves can have a very negative impact on our mental health and led to bigger and lasting problems such as depression and anxiety.

Self esteem and self confidence can take a massive beating, and the whole pressure-cooker experience can be not only very overwhelming, but in worst case, unbearable for some.

While student counselling services can be a brilliant support, often long waiting lists mean that help might not be readily available when it is needed.

This is where we can help.

MyMind provides affordable counselling and psychotherapy for students with no waiting list.

For just €20 and with a valid student card, you can book an appointment with one of our dedicated, expert team of counsellors or psychotherapists in Dublin 1, Dublin 6, Limerick or Cork.

There is also the option to have your session online via video chat on your computer, tablet or phone so there is minimal disruption to your busy schedule.

You don’t even have to leave your kitchen or bedroom to talk to someone at MyMind about any feelings or problems you are struggling with.

Talking to professional can help prepare you for the stresses on the horizon and give you the tools to cope with anything that comes your way.
