Am I eligible to receive counseling services?
Registered SUNY Oswego students are eligible to seek services at the Counseling Services Center. During your initial intake session, you and your counselor will determine your goals and outline some of the services which may be most helpful to you.
What type of counseling is offered?
Individual and group counseling are the most common services offered. Group themes vary each semester but often include women's self exploration, anxiety management, depression, anger management, assertiveness, etc.
What are some of the reasons for coming to counseling?
Students seek counseling for a variety of reasons. Some may be dealing with anxiety or depression, others may have experienced a loss, such as a death in the family or a relationship coming to an end. Freshman may come to the Center if they are having a difficult time adjusting to college. Seniors sometimes wish to speak to a counselor when they are uncertain about life after college. Many students enter counseling when they are struggling with challenges in their relationships. If you have been experiencing difficulty with an issue, and have attempted to resolve it on your own and have not been successful, counseling may be of help.
How do I make an appointment?
We suggest you call the Center to arrange an appointment in advance. We can be reached at 312-4416 between the hours of 8:30 am-Noon and 1:00-4:30 pm, Monday through Friday, during regular class times.
Can I e-mail counselors directly? No e-mails please! E-mail is not a secure from of communication.
How much will it cost?
There is no charge for counseling sessions. The Center is partially supported by the student health fee. The Counseling Center does, however, charge a $10.00 no-show fee for all missed appointments not cancelled at least 24 hours in advance. The Center allows one missed appointment or late cancellation before assessing this fee.
Where is the Counseling Services Center?
The Counseling Services Center is located in the rear section of the Mary Walker Health Center.
How can I get help for a friend?
If you are concerned about a friend, let them know about the Counseling Services Center. It is best if they make their own appointment and choose to seek counseling without pressure to do so. If you continue to feel concerned, and they choose not to seek counseling, feel free to call the Center to consult about how to best proceed.
