5 ways to soothe an anxious PhD student

Oftentimes the topics are academic or administrative, but sometimes it strays over the edge into personal life. This is inevitable as the PhD process involves the whole person – and their significant others of course. A few weeks ago I had an email conversation with Krystle, a student who is in the final stage of her degree study at RMIT. Krystle is struggling with a common relationship difficulty during PhD study, as she explained to me: “I have been going through a bit of a rough time over the last couple weeks adjusting to the looming thesis deadline and the stress/anxiety/nervousness that it has induced. Krystle later sent me some examples of repartee between Mr Krystle and herself.

Krystle: “I got the extension I applied for”Mr Krystle: “How long”Krystle: “6 months”Mr Krystle: “So how long do you have to submit?” “What can I do to help?” I hope so too! PhinisheD.
