Why Should I See a Counselor?
Here are some of the things students may want to do when they come to talk story:
(Re)Connect with Yourself
Are you so busy you miss yourself? Do you take care of you? Do your actions match your values?
Take this self-assessment to check in with yourself.
(Re)Connect with Others
Do you want to be more out-going? Does your temper get in the way? Counseling can help you learn the relationship and communication skills you need.
Find Your Balance
School, work, family, and friends! How do we do it all?
Breathe. Learn more about stress management.
Cope with Life
There are ways to feel better, even if you can't fix your problems. Mindfulness practice can help you to learn to respond to situations, instead of reacting.
Procrastination? Insomnia? Drinking more than you want to? Talk to a counselor about tools that can help you make the changes you want to make in your life.
There doesn't have to be a specific reason for counseling. Sometimes it's just nice to have a safe place to explore your thoughts, fears, or dreams.
