Marinette Stress Counselors are Here to Help
Asking for help is an intelligent decision. Successful people practice this healthy habit. College life can be very demanding for most of us and unfortunately, we sometimes bring bad habits that get in the way of our success. One of these, is not asking for help when we know we need it. Here are some false beliefs about asking for help:
- I shouldn't need help! Asking for help is for the weak. What will others think?
- I'm afraid. I'm afraid to talk about my problems and what the counselor will think. I don't trust people.
- Is this really confidential? My problems aren't that bad. I know what to do; I just don't do it. I'm terrified of failing and asking for help. I don't want to waste the counselor's time. I don't want anyone to know how bad it is.
- By refusing to search out/seek help, we are not living proactively!
All full-time and part-time students can take advantage of six free counseling sessions. These sessions are included in tuition and fees, and are of no additional cost to the student at the time of the counseling session.
