Counseling for Students in Pooler, GA—Counselors and Therapists
School should be a time to get excited about the future and prepare for your best life. And while this remains true for some, for others school is a very different reality. It comes with extraordinary amounts of pressure and the risk for unhealthy mental health.
There are so many ways for students to learn, grow, and have fun. But with more of these opportunities comes more opportunities to “fail” by society’s standards. Nowadays, students are expected to have healthy relationships, do well in academics, and fill their time with extracurriculars that will launch them into the next phase of life. Along with that, there’s the peer pressure of drugs, bad habits, and fitting in. No wonder student’s mental health declines during the school year!
Thriveworks Pooler works to take some of the pressure off of students and teach them techniques to keep them healthy and thriving.
How Do I Know If Counseling for Students Is for Me?
Difficulty is apart of growing up. It can even be beneficial to their development. But when is it too much? It’s a tricky balance, especially when you’re an adult and can’t distinguish normal student stress and mood swings from something more dangerous. Thriveworks Pooler is here to walk you through some options and decide on the next best steps.
Usually, when the struggles become prolonged, it becomes dangerous. Being stressed the night before a test is normal. Being every night for two weeks before a test is not. It can start to impact all parts of their life in negative ways that they don’t deserve. Counseling for students is one way that students can be heard and learn healthy coping methods for current situations, past pains, or future worries.
Thriveworks Pooler Counseling for Students is open to any topic. There’s never too-big or too-small reason for counseling, all are welcome!
