Individual Counseling

Individual counseling is at the heart of the services offered by the Counseling and Testing Center. Our staff provides individual counseling typically during hour long weekly sessions. Most students come in for under six sessions and return if their difficulties persist. There are some students who come in for longer treatment while others come in for a single session and are referred out for additional services.

While clinicians bring their own unique approaches to helping, the WKU Counseling and Testing Center has a strong commitment to providing clinically appropriate, effective treatment in a caring, supportive, and developmentally sensitive manner.
