Starting Therapy for students

What is Therapy for students?

Therapy for students helps with a range of challenges from normal struggles that come with moving from childhood to adulthood to challenges that stem from academic pressures and stress. If a student is suffering — whether they're feeling moody, anxious, discouraged, or experiencing relationship issues — they can benefit from talking to a provider at Thriveworks in Savannah, GA.

How does Therapy for students work?

Therapy for students works by helping them learn from their experiences and develop healthy tools for dealing with difficult circumstances. When they meet with Thriveworks Savannah therapists, they can trust that they'll receive a treatment plan that is personalized to their challenges and needs.

Is Therapy for students conducted in person or online?

Therapy for students at Thriveworks is conducted both in person and through Online therapy. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you.

How long does Therapy for students last?

The length of therapy for students depends on the individual's needs as well as the goals that they might have. That said, generally, therapy for students will last for several months.

Need more help deciding?

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 Savannah 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 Savannah 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 Savannah Counseling for Students is open to any topic. There’s never too-big or too-small reason for counseling, all are welcome! If we aren’t the best fit for you and your student, we can help you find the person who is. Your student deserves to have a happy, fulfilling life. We are determined to help them get there!

Sometimes, students will withdraw when they’re struggling, making the decision to reach out even more difficult. Thank you for having the courage to do so! To help you, here are a few signs that could point towards an unhealthy mental state.

  • Worrying and stress
  • Trouble making friends
  • Social anxiety
  • Self-Harm
  • Changes in sleep and eating habits
  • Self-confidence and image
  • Withdrawal from loved ones
  • Hopelessness
  • Anger
  • Suicidal Ideation (wishing they weren’t here or thinking that no one would miss them)

Thriveworks helped me realize that I do believe people can change. I’m not the person I was three months ago, broken and fearful. I’m healthy and happy and for the first time being kind to myself. Thank you for giving me my life back.
