Overcoming Perfectionism Workshop – Semester 1 2019

How many of the above statements can you relate to? If it is a few, then Perfectionism might be relevant for you.

For more information on what Perfectionism is, and how it can be problematic, check out my earlier blog post which explores this in more detail.


Perfectionism is such a common problem among university students, that we regularly run a workshop series which helps students with overcoming problematic perfectionism.

The series of 4 x 90 minute workshops will focus on why perfectionism can be hard to shift, strategies to shift from problematic perfectionism to healthy striving, and how to manage self-criticism and procrastination.

The workshops will be held over four weekly sessions:

At Callaghan Campus: 1-2.30pm on Thursdays, commencing Thursday 7th March 2019

At Ourimbah Campus: 1-2.30pm on Tuesdays, commencing Tuesday 12th March 2019

Places are limited. To register for your place, complete the online registration form or email counselling at newcastle.edu.au for more information.
