An Overview of Counseling Services

The Student Counseling Center offers a range of counseling services at no charge to all UT students who meet eligibility requirements.

Why do students seek counseling services?

Student Counseling Center services are a confidential process designed to help you address your concerns, make better decisions, learn effective coping strategies, improve your personal skills and acquire a better awareness of your thoughts, feelings, and actions. While in counseling, you may also examine beliefs and ways of thinking about the world, reflect on patterns of behavior, increase personal confidence, and become more aware of the needs of others. Most students find only a few sessions are needed to address their concerns. If longer-term counseling is needed, your therapist will discuss this with you.


Staff members provide a variety of services for students, faculty, and staff. Presenting problems range from mild situational stresses to acute psychiatric conditions and chronic dysfunctions.

Services available to students include individual, couples and group therapy, crisis intervention, and psychiatry consultation. Individual and couples counseling is provided on a session-limited basis. Time limits do not apply to group therapy.
