"Just thinking about what you have to do is not the same as talking to someone about it and bringing it to light. So having a coach to talk to and to help you form your ideas into a more beneficial state for you as a student will only help you and can't hurt you. So I definitely recommend if you have the opportunity and if you have the willingness to pause and accept the help you may need"
