Through the counseling services offered, we strive to improve the educational experience and success of students by providing holistic counseling services addressing personal, career, and academic needs. We help students address issues and concerns that may impede their ability to fulfill their academic potential through the following services.

Personal Counseling

    • Students will often experience concerns of a personal nature such as anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, grief, relationship/family issues, sexual identity concerns, homesickness and roommate issues.
    • Personal counseling is designed to assist the student in learning coping skills that will help them function positively in the academic environment. Personal counseling is an active process requiring participation by the client, both in and outside of sessions. Couples counseling may be sought if both parties are currently enrolled as students at East Georgia State College.
    • Students may be referred out should their needs extend beyond the scope of practice or resources available through the Counseling Center.

Career Counseling

Early career planning is crucial in assisting students in finding jobs that are a good fit. Career counseling and planning will assist the student in matching their unique skills and preferences to specific types of work so that they can build the career they want. Choosing a career and/or major can be overwhelming for many students. 

Career counseling services are designed to assist the student in:

    • exploring career aptitudes and interests;
    • determining career values;
    • learning more about specific job requirements;
    • finding opportunities for employment. 

We offer individual counseling as well as assessment to assist the student in identifying their career interests. 

Academic Counseling

Academic counseling exists to assist students with issues that affect their ability to learn. Test preparation and test anxiety are two of the most common problems that students encounter in this area. Additionally, many students have a difficult time adjusting to college-level coursework.

We can assist you in:

    • learning strategies to overcome test anxiety;
    • developing better study habits/test preparation skills;
    • time management skills;
    • organization and study skills.

While we do not provide academic advisement, we can assist students in developing a general academic plan.

If you are in an immediate life-threatening crisis call 9-1-1.
DO NOT attempt to contact us via email or voicemail.
