Frequently Asked Questions
Any member of the University community can benefit from counselling services.
Counselling is a form of talk therapy”. It is a process where an individual, couple or family meets with a trained professional counsellor to talk about issues they consider challenging and can affect their mental health.
In many cases an individual may feel that what he or she is going through is not serious enough to warrant assistance or there is a lot of uncertainty about the kind of support that a counsellor can offer. However the benefit is that each individual may become much more aware about his or her feeling/situation after interacting with a counsellor.
Our counsellors are well trained and certified to guide you express your feelings and thoughts and delve into your world in order to improve your condition. They provide confidential, private and a non-judgmental atmosphere in which you can feel safe, confident and assured to open up on issues of concern to you with the view to finding solutions.
Seeking counselling is not indicative that you are mentally ill or have a diagnosis of any form of psychiatric disorder. Services can help deal with your emotional, academic, relational or mental health problems, including:
- problems dealing with daily stress
- social phobia-extreme shyness and low confidence,
- coping with the effects of abuse
- mood challenges,
- lack of concentration in class or studies,
- sexual problems
- panic attacks and phobias
- dealing with extreme grief,
- eating disorders
- fear of success
- Obsessive behavior.
The Counsellor listens and handles you with compassion and understanding rather than making a diagnosis. The Counsellor assesses what has happened to you, not what is wrong with you. Then helps with life-changing experiences which can help you to improve your mental health, overcome social or emotional challenges, and fulfill your potential.
