Benefits of Counseling
Counseling provides a safe and private setting to address the personal concerns and issues which cause people distress. Many people report a significant reduction in their distress after their first meeting while for others it takes additional sessions.
Students may find that their academic performance improves. Often problem solving and communication skills are enhanced.
Personal growth and self-awareness are important additional benefits.
Counseling requires a time and effort commitment, much like attending a class. Counseling is at times stressful.
Some concerns which have been expressed by students include:
- Relationship Concerns
- Family Conflicts
- Role Conflicts and Strain
- Lack of Emotional Support
- Body Image Concerns
