College is a very unique time in a person’s life. Some students are very young and away from home for the first time. Other students may be going back to school with the responsibility of a family to start a new career. Inevitably, some students will face life challenges such as stress, academic difficulties, relationship issues, etc., that if dealt with appropriately, can facilitate emotional growth & maturity.
The De Paul Institute of Science and Technology provides counseling service to enhance the mental health capacity of the College students and the capacity of the community to foster emotionally mature, responsible, and self-reliant students. Our primary service is one-on-one counseling and psychotherapy with students. Counseling Services focuses on learning and the education of the whole person. We strive to assist students in identifying, understanding, and resolving problems in their lives. Typical reasons for seeking counseling include roommate difficulties, Loneliness, anxiety, low self-esteem, disordered, eating, abuse issues, procrastination, family problems, interpersonal conflicts, difficulty in intimate relationships, questions about sexuality or sexual orientation depression, cultural or ethnic concerns, achievement conflicts, concerns about use of alcohol or drugs etc.
The college years are a time of accelerated growth, significant challenges and considerable stress. The Counseling Service is here to help you with the variety of concerns that arise during these intense years. Counselling offers an opportunity to talk confidentially to someone impartial, so you are free to explore your true feelings and be supported without judgment. Because everyone is different, a counsellor does not simply dish out advice – the discussions in counselling is aimed at helping you understand what is going on for you and what would help you best.
Most students are seen for short term therapy and in some cases may also be assisted with referrals for more intensive therapy when appropriate. Counseling Service is committed to assisting those who are concerned about others. We frequently meet with students, faculty, and others worried about students, friends, roommates, or family. The aim is to help understand what the problems might be and how the concerned individual can intervene most effectively.
