Common Reasons for Seeking Counseling
Students may seek counseling for help with resolving emotional or personal issues. Some of the common issues for seeking counseling include, but are not limited to: adjustment issues, academic concerns, anger management, anxiety, test anxiety, concentration difficulties, depression, domestic violence, eating disorders, family problems, sexual identity concerns, self-esteem, or stress management.
While many issues can be resolved with the help of a counselor, it is sometimes necessary to refer students to external providers in order to get the most appropriate treatment.
How Does Counseling Work?
Counseling works by helping people objectively look at behaviors, feelings, and thoughts in problematic situations. Counseling helps people to learn more effective ways to deal with those situations. Counseling is a collaborative effort. You and your counselor will work together to achieve your goals and reach a greater peace of mind.
