When you meet with your counselor, you will talk about what you are hoping for, in terms of treatment, and what the therapist thinks is needed. Often concerns can be addressed in relatively short-term counseling; however, the length of your particular counseling will depend on many factors. You and your counselor will decide together what is right for you. You will always have the option to discontinue your treatment, even if the counselor recommends more sessions. If you decide that you want more sessions than the center can offer, we will help you to find a resource in the community.
If you’re concerned about your student’s psychological well-being, we are available to consult with you about the wisest way to handle your particular situation. This may include encouraging your student to come to the counseling center, having someone from Residence Life check on them, talking to their Advisor, and other options. Please know that you are welcome to call us at 336.316.2163 or to email Gaither Terrell. If there is a concern about the imminent safety of your student, we can take immediate action. In an after-hours mental health emergency, please call Public Safety at 336.316.2911.
We are open 9am. to 5pm Monday-Friday for appointments or for emergencies. The center is located at 1203 Rachel Carson Court (former Milner Guest House). If you are experiencing a psychological crisis and the center is closed, please contact Guilford’s Public Safety office at 336.316.2911; they will assess your needs and contact the staff member on duty.
