Why Do Students Need Counseling?

Students come to counseling for a variety of reasons. They may be experiencing trouble with their appetite or sleep, adjustment to a new environment, or concentration problems. They may experience mood swings, difficulty with motivation, or trouble interacting appropriately with others. College is a time of new experiences and testing limits; often it is also a time when students may experience difficulties with alcohol or drug abuse.

How Counseling helps?

Counseling helps students learn new coping skills, set goals, solve problems, make decisions, and manage stress. Counseling also provides a safe and structured environment in which students can explore various aspects of their emerging adult lives - independence, values, personal goals, intimacy and friendship.
