Counseling is a process of dealing with problems with the support of a mental health specialist. It aims at the personal, interpersonal and academic development of the student.
Individual sessions provide a safe and non judgemental space for you to share your issues and gain a different perspective on adversities. The dysfunctional thought and behavior patterns are detected and challenged with functional patterns.
The counseling process might focus on a specific problem in the short-term; as well as self-discovery and transformation in the long term. The success rate of the counseling increases with the appropriate interventions along with the regular attendance of the person.
