Why Seeing a Therapist During College is Good

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Ship chapter.

Even if you don’t have any substantial issues or are feeling down, it is always nice to talk to someone about your life and what you’re doing!

1. Let it all out

Whether it be a huge test or stubbing your toe, letting out your emotions and feelings is always helpful. This can help in the long run, considering most people who hold things in, end up exploding. 

2. Learn about yourself

Talking to a professional opens the door to learning more about who you are as a person. Maybe you have anxiety about talking to people and never realized it, or possibly a fear of spiders. Seeing someone regularly can help someone learn more about their inner being. 

3. Talking to people

Communication with others is one of the hardest things to learn, especially during a conflict. Therapy can help a person learn coping skills and communication strategies to help them in their everyday life. 

Biographies are always the worst to write, because if you glamorize yourself, you're considered vain. If you talk too little about yourself, it doesn't satisfy the readers needs. My name is Rachel. I enjoy long walks on the beach, candle lit dinners, and a romantic movie on Netflix. Kidding. I've been writing short stories and poems ever since I can remember, so to say that I enjoy writing is an understatement. I am so thankful to be apart of HerCampus and all the amazing opportunities coming up!
