Counseling Center

College can be a wonderful, but stressful, experience, creating unanticipated pressures and problems. When this happens, the Student Counseling Center is here to help. We offer a variety of services, including individual and group counseling, workshops, crisis intervention and referrals to off-campus resources. Any student currently enrolled at Final International University is eligible for free, private and confidential services. The Student Counseling Center is staffed by qualified and credentialed mental health professionals trained in clinical psychology. Understanding a situation before it reaches the crisis stage often allows for greater freedom when making choices. We encourage anyone who just wants to talk to come in and meet with a counselor, even if he or she is not sure that counseling is what is needed. For many students, dealing effectively with cultural adaptation, emotional and social issues increases their academic success. Common concerns that students present to counselors include: problems with cultural adaptation, self-esteem, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, family-related problems, decision making and uncertainty about the future.

What is Counseling?

Counseling is a voluntary relationship in which a professionally trained psychologist, social worker, psychiatrist or counselor meets with you to discuss some issue or conflict. The goal of counseling is to better understand thoughts, feelings and relationships by looking at patterns of behavior. Change is sought through the expression of thoughts and emotions in a safe, supportive and nonjudgmental forum. A counselor is available and interested in listening to your concerns and will help you develop effective coping strategies. During the first meeting at the Student Counseling Center, you will be asked to describe yourself and your reason for seeking counseling. You will then work together with the counselor to set goals and formulate a plan for attaining those goals. Quite often, the initial consultation is all that is needed to resolve the presented issue. However, you and the counselor may also decide that continued counseling is the best route to take. If so, a plan will be made to continue at the Student Counseling Center, or you will be given a referral to a resource that may better meet your needs. Counseling usually occurs once a week and can be one-to-one or in a group. The main responsibility in either group or individual counseling is to come on time to your scheduled sessions and to talk as honestly as you can about what you are feeling and experiencing.

Confidentiality

Both individual and group counseling sessions are private and confidential. Information about students, or their sessions, cannot be released to anyone, including a student’s parent, without the student’s written permission. These rules are maintained in all cases with the exception of emergency situations that present a danger to life.

 

Group Counseling

Groups are formed to create a supportive forum for people with similar issues. In group counseling, six to 10 individuals meet, at an assigned time, with a group leader, usually on a weekly basis. Group members talk about what is currently going on in their lives and what may be troubling them. Group leaders and other group members are available to give support and offer alternatives and feedback to members of the group.

Workshops

Workshops are educational presentations for students that enhance personal growth and lessen stress and anxiety. Typical workshops include stress management, relationship issues, anger management, assertiveness training, eating disorders and body issues, grief and loss, and sexual abuse and assault. The Student Counseling Center welcomes requests for other workshops.

To Make an Appointment

With the exceptions of emergencies, the Counseling Center works by appointment only. Although our door is open to everyone at all times, you need to make an appointment. In order to make an appointment, you can either stop by in person when you see the door open or you can send us an e-mail (counseling@final.edu.tr). So, where are we located?
