Counseling Resources

Youngstown State University provides free and confidential counseling services to current students who are seeking to make a desired change within their lives. Students who utilize individual counseling services will experience face-to-face meetings with a therapist or counselor to discuss any difficult thoughts or emotions in which they are currently experiencing.

What will you experience in individual counseling?

In the first meeting, you and your therapist will meet and talk about what you are currently experiencing (and have experienced in your past); what you want to change; how willing you are to make those changes; and how you can make and sustain your desired changes. After the initial discussion, you and your therapist or counselor will set up goals in a collaborative process to address an area in which you would like to see change in. Throughout the course of individual counseling, you may meet with your therapist or counselor weekly or more sporadically depending on your goals and progress.
