Making An Appointment:  Students can make an appointment for counseling by either calling (336-758-5273) or coming by (117 Reynolda Hall) We offer same day scheduling on a first come first serve basis.

Your First Visit:  During your first visit to the counseling center you will be asked to spend about 15-20 minutes completing an informed consent for service, a demographic questionnaire, and an electronic assessment of overall mental health.  Once completed your counselor will review these materials with you as appropriate, and spend approximately 25-35 minutes with you to discuss your presenting concerns.  During the initial session, your counselor will listen to you to hear the issues that have brought you in, and make recommendations for the types of services (either on- or off-campus) that might be appropriate to help.  

Follow-Up Visits:  The length and frequency of follow-up visits to the UCC will be determined in consultation with your counselor.  Meetings typically last for either 25 or 45 minutes.  Some students find relief by coming for 2-3 sessions to talk about something very specific, while others are unsure about how frequently or for how long they would like to attend sessions.  Students are typically seen short term.  Positive outcomes in counseling are often dependent upon the work that clients do in between sessions.  We encourage our clients to practice the skills that are learned and discussed in counseling during the time in between sessions.
