Personal Counseling

Everyone encounters times in life where we need some extra support, an objective listening ear, a perspective different from our own or help navigating difficult emotions and situations. Hesston College Counseling Services is here for those times.

  • safe, confidential process
  • free, accessible services
  • compassionate, non-judgmental perspective

People come to talk with us for any number of reasons. No issue is too small to bring to counseling and you are free to talk about anything that is important to you. Sometimes simply naming the difficulty can bring relief from a troubling situation. Talking with a counselor can help a person clarify the issues he or she is dealing with. Counseling can also be helpful in bringing about a better understanding of self or situations. Counseling can assist students in helping to resolve conflicts which may interfere with personal growth development and goal attainment. Some students may prefer to access mental health support in a virtual format. To access these services, sign up using the virtual counseling link at hesston.edu/counseling. Students can make unlimited appointments with a licensed therapist or life coach to address mental health challenges or life coach topics such as finances, work and family issues. Talk to the campus counselor, your academic advisor, RA or RD for more information.

The counselor makes referrals to area mental health services if requested by the student or if additional services needed. The counselors also work with area mental health services for crisis stabilization.
