Self-care is Important
Charleston Southern University’s Counseling Services office offers professional mental health services in the form of personal counseling from a faith-informed, multicultural perspective. Our counselors are familiar with using nonfaith-based approaches if that is preferred, along with biblical or integrative approaches (Christian theology and psychology). Our goal is always to work with students in a collaborative, goal-oriented counseling approach.
We offer short-term, professional services for a wide range of issues including (but not limited to):
- Generalized Anxiety
- Social Anxiety
- Eating Concerns
- Academic Problems
- Anger Management
- Substance Abuse
- Relationship Issues
- Stress and Time Management
