How do I know if I should go to counseling, or if counseling could help me?
We recommend that a student contact Counseling Services if distress in your life has recently increased or if your overall life satisfaction is not where you want it to be.
Extended answer:
Students seek counseling for a variety of reasons such as adjusting to university life, learning healthy ways to cope with stress, enhancing personal relationships, creating balance in their lives, treating depression, anxiety & substance use, coping with crisis, or requesting psychiatric referral. While just about anyone could benefit from taking the time to reflect on his or her life to gain insight or to increase self-awareness, there are many people for whom participating in therapy or other Counseling Services would improve their quality of life.
