Counseling is a process whereby someone who is struggling with some aspect of life enters into a relationship with a trained mental health professional in order to gain insight and make changes in his or her life. This process may involve exploring thoughts, perceptions, behaviors and emotions in order to recognize and understand oneself better.
The counseling experience can assist in reducing feelings of stress, improving one’s ability to make healthy decisions, engaging in healthy behaviors and enhancing one’s relationships with others.
The following are just some examples of common concerns when GIST international students come in for counseling:
Adjustment to campus life
Being away from family and friends at home
