How Do I Know It’s Time To meet a counselor?

Everyone experiences ups and downs, but there are times that it is difficult to resolve problems independently. Counseling can be very helpful when these moments arise. Some signs/signals that it may be time to contact the counselor!

Feelings that are becoming overwhelming or unmanageable

Intrusive thoughts that you can’t shake

Difficulty sleeping and/or eating

Feeling that relationships are troubled

Just not feeling like yourself and worried that things may not resolve on their own

Feeling the need to disclose upsetting or confusing events

Feeling the need to voice pent-up thoughts and emotions

Difficulty focusing on study

Counseling can often involve talking about difficult or painful feelings and, as you begin to face them, you may feel worse in some ways. However, with the help and support of your counselor, you should gradually start to feel better.

In most cases, it takes a number of sessions before the counseling starts to make a difference, and a regular commitment is required to make the best use of the therapy.

What Can I Expect from Counseling?

You can expect to find someone who is interested in listening to your concerns, helping you understand them better and guiding you to resolving them in a healthy manner. Your counselor will take you seriously, and be willing to discuss anything you wish to talk about. Counselors have no "magic wand" and cannot read your mind, and are not there to solve your problems for you. They are there to help you look at your concerns in a new way, and assist you in deciding how to change what you want to change.

Counselors differ in their approaches, but you will find that a positive relationship and partnership is essential in all counseling for it to be effective. As you develop trust in your counselor, you may be expected to participate in trying new ways of approaching your problems, and be willing to try thinking in new ways or experimenting with new behaviors.

Your responsibility in counseling includes a commitment to attending sessions regularly, talk as honestly as you can about what is bothering you, and be willing to look at your life in a different way. You are also responsible for letting your counselor know if something isn't working for you.

Trusting your counselor

A good counselor will focus on you and listen without judging or criticizing you. They may help you find out about how you could deal with your problems, but they shouldn't tell you what to do. For counseling to be effective, you need to build a trusting and safe relationship with your counselor.

Your Privacy/Confidentiality

PAU offer a safe and confidential environment for you to discuss your concerns. Many students are concerned about the privacy of their visits to the counselor. Visits to the counseling room are confidential. The content of sessions is discussed with no one. As such, everything you share in the counselor's room with your counselor is confidential. Information will never be shared with anyone outside the Counseling Room, without your written permission. Personal concerns shared at the Counseling Room are not integrated with a student’s academic record. So, feel free to share your problem with me and my team.

However, Exceptions to this rule are made in rare situations where a counselor feels you, or someone else is in danger. When this situation arises, the counselor will take the appropriate steps to ensure your protection and physical well being.
