Psychological Counseling Services

Our students can get individual and group counseling in our offices at Student Center and Dormitory.

What is Individual Counseling?

Individual counseling is a one-on-one session held between a student and a counselor. During individual counseling sessions, the psychological counselor listens to students, focuses on their issues and problems, assists them in seeing their options and aids them in their decision making.  In cooperation with the counselor, students gradually learn to recognize and define their problems. Sessions also help students understand how their issues affect their emotions. Students learn how to take responsibility for overcoming their issues and how to find effective solutions for their problems.

Individual counseling sessions are offered based on voluntary consent. Sessions are conducted upon the application of students.

What is Group Counseling?

Group Counseling involves a small group of 6-10 students who meet to discuss a shared issue.  Group Counseling aims to help students analyze their mutual problems and learn how to cope with their issues through group interaction and communication.

Students support each other and develop solutions for their mutual problems during group counseling.
