Supporting Student Growth and Life Satisfaction
All students currently enrolled at Oglethorpe University may use Counseling Center services at no cost. For those under 18, a signature from a parent/guardian is needed when consenting to counseling.
The most common concerns that students bring to counseling are:
- Relationship issues
- Personal growth
- Identity exploration
- Body image issues
- Low self-confidence
- Eating disorders
- Depression and anxiety
- Controlling the use of alcohol and other drugs
- Adjustment to college
- Academic difficulties and career indecision
- Assault/ rape or other trauma
Counseling is a collaborative process that involves the development of a unique, confidential helping relationship. In these relationships, counselors are facilitators who help their students understand themselves and their environments more accurately. Students are encouraged to understand their feelings and behaviors, relationships with others and life circumstances. Discussion of issues enables growth in making healthier choices and taking responsible action with themselves, relationships, family and academics. Psychotherapy can feel difficult because you are coming to discuss unpleasant aspects of your life. You may feel exhausted, sad, angry and frustrated. You can be confident that all of these feelings will dissipate as you work through your issues.
The Counseling Center supports LBGTQ students.
We support undocumented students.
