Benefits of Counseling

The counseling process is, in many ways, like an educational experience. The client not only learns more about him/herself, but also acquires new skills. Sometimes, counseling involves learning more about a particular condition (e.g., depression, anxiety, eating disorders) by which the client is affected, so that he/she can better understand treatment options.

Below are some examples of what students can gain from personal/psychological counseling:

  1. Improved communication and interpersonal skills
  2. Greater self-acceptance and self-esteem
  3. Ability to change self-defeating behaviors/habits
  4. Better expression and management of emotions, including anger
  5. Relief from depression, anxiety or other mental health conditions
  6. Increased confidence and decision-making skills
  7. Ability to manage stress effectively
  8. Improved problem-solving and conflict resolution abilities
