What is the counseling program?

The counseling program at Greenville College provides six counseling session to students free of charge each year for a wide variety of issues and personal concerns. Services are provided through individual counseling sessions, group counseling and topical seminars.

Sessions are provided by:

George Smith - 618.664.7000
Jubilee House - 618.664.2360
Prairie Counseling - 618.664.1455

All services provided to students are CONFIDENTIAL

What does CONFIDENTIAL mean?

Confidentiality means that your involvement in counseling and the reason for your involvement is protected within the counseling program. Information cannot be released to school personnel, family, friends or anyone else without your specific written authorization.

Why would I seek services in the counseling program?

People seek counseling for many reasons. But typically they come for services when they recognize that they are not functioning fully academically or socially. Many factors affect our functioning. Some of those are:

  • Simply feeling bad, dissatisfied, lonely or unhappy
  • Feelings of depression
  • Persistent anxiety and tension
  • Conflicts with friends, family or authority
  • Feeling overwhelmed and confused
  • Self-destructive habits and behaviors that persist in spite of attempts to change
  • Difficulty in managing anger
  • Fears and insecurities that interfere with successful functioning
  • Dealing with grief and loss issues
  • Healing from sexual assault or childhood sexual abuse

What happens when I ask for help?

When you call for information or are seeking help, you will talk with a receptionist who will discretely explore the nature of your concerns and then set up an appointment for you to meet as soon as possible with a counselor. Please identify yourself as a Greenville College student to insure you aren't billed for up to six sessions. At your first meeting the counselor will begin by getting some information and giving you an opportunity to express in more detail the concerns that you have been having. Together, you and the counselor will determine the best course of action, including the type of service that would be most helpful. If it is decided that you would benefit from services outside of the scope of the counseling program, the counselor will provide the appropriate information and referral.
