Individual Counseling


The majority of counseling done by Counseling Services is individual in nature. All people encounter problems and frustrations in their environments and relationships which interfere with their ability to live life as fully and satisfactorily as they would like. Most individuals can benefit from discussing these problems with an objective caring, supportive professional in a confidential setting. To this end, Millsaps provides counseling or therapy free of charge to its students for problems and concerns such as:

  • Relationships - family issues, relationships, conflicts, loneliness or shyness
  • Stress Management
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Homesickness or other college adjustment
  • Communication - assertiveness training, help with speech anxiety
  • Self-esteem
  • Grief
  • Anger Management
  • Sexual Identity
  • Sexual/physical abuse or assault
  • Academic Skills Training - help with study habits, time management skills
  • Learning Disabilities - teaching organizational skills, referring students for evaluation.
  • Personal Growth
