What Is Counseling?

Everyone needs someone to talk with at times. Counseling is a growth process through which students are helped to do the following:

  • Define goals
  • Make decisions
  • Solve problems related to personal, social, academic and career concerns. Counselors help students to resolve personal and educational concerns.

All counseling is personal counseling, but with different focused concerns. Each individual case is dealt with understanding, objective and non-judgmental care.
