What are the possible benefits?

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. Some common concerns for students seeking counseling have been:

  • Relationship Concerns
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Academic Stress
  • Adjustment to University life
  • Loneliness
  • Family Conflicts
  • Role Conflicts and Strain
  • Lack of Emotional Support
  • Abuse
  • Body Image Concerns
