Counseling Services

University Counseling Services provide vital support for student’s mental health and emotional well-being. These services offer resources such as individual counseling, group therapy, workshops, and crisis intervention. The goal is to help students navigate the challenges of university life and develop effective coping strategies. Staffed by licensed mental health professionals, confidentiality is upheld, creating a safe space for students to share their concerns. Counseling Services also promote mental health awareness through outreach programs and campaigns. Overall, these services play a crucial role in fostering a supportive campus environment and empowering students to succeed academically and personally.


Students may face a wide variety of common personal issues as well as academic pressures during their university experience. When such issues are present, they often interfere with academic growth. Students who recognize these problems may utilize the counseling services to deal with challenges in a healthy manner and enhance their personal well-being.

Our counseling services involve a wide range of methods to offer support to our students and provide regular sessions as needed, as it is often helpful to discuss these concerns in a supportive and professional environment. Students may be expected to complete certain tasks and activities as part of the interactive counseling process.
