Potential 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:

  • improved communication and interpersonal skills

  • greater self-acceptance and self-esteem

  • ability to change self-defeating behaviors/habits

  • better expression and management of emotions, including anger

  • relief from depression, anxiety or other mental health conditions

  • increased confidence and decision-making skills

  • ability to manage stress effectively

  • improved problem-solving and conflict resolution abilities
