Counseling Services Can Benefit Everyone:

The college years are a unique time in an individual's life. It is a time when one emerges into adulthood. As our society continues to change and evolve, college students are experiencing some of the most dramatic, exciting, and often distressing changes. This period is one of excitement and uncertainty, possibility and confusion, new freedoms and new fears.

The lessons learned and the obstacles overcome during these years can provide a wonderful opportunity for intellectual, social, and emotional growth. These years can be a time for exploration, a time for healing, and a time to establish healthy habits that will promote your overall wellness throughout your lifetime.

Many individuals seek counseling only when life seems to be too difficult to manage, when negative consequences such as overwhelming stress, psychological problems or academic difficulties affect their performance as a student. Counseling services can, however, be a useful and rewarding experience for everyone who is navigating life, asking big questions, and exploring the endless options life seems to offer.

If you have taken the time to visit this site and to read this passage, there is a good chance that you or someone you care about may benefit from speaking to a counselor. Fredonia's Counseling Center offers free, confidential, private and individualized services by licensed mental health professionals to all registered students. Contact us today.
