Being a student is difficult at the best of times. However, issues at school and in your life may affect your mood and emotions.

SolBridge International School of Business recognizes this. That’s why there is a student counselor here to assist you, free of charge, with overcoming these difficulties and getting your life and education at SolBridge back on track.

This service is confidential, and is staffed by an experienced and trained counselor. It can be done in a face-to-face meeting, either by appointment or walk-in; by telephone; or by email.

  • Adjusting to major changes, like study commitments
  • Managing stress and balancing other commitments
  • Learning methods of relaxation
  • Overcoming fears (e.g. of giving presentations or of taking exams)
  • Working out relationship and family problems
  • Coping with lack of friends or support
  • Motivation or setting goals
  • Easing depression or stress
  • Rebuilding self-esteem and confidence

How can I talk to the counselor at SolBridge?

During these hours, Craig will be in Room 305, which is one of the offices of the Career Development Center.

This counseling is confidential. Nothing that you say to the Student Counselor can be shared with a third party without your consent. To that end, you will be asked to sign a confidentiality agreement when you see the Student ounselor during your initial meeting.

There are times when the Student Counselor may need to speak to other counselors (who are also bound by confidentiality) in order to review the Counselor’s work. In thesesituations, names and gender references are not used in order to protect your privacy.

There are also times when the Student Counselor may need to break confidentiality, namely at times when they believe that your life, or another person’s life, is at risk. In this case, the Student Counselor will usually tell you of their concern and what they intend to do. The Student Counselor may need to contact other professionals and/or your family, depending on the nature of the risk.

Feel free to ask the Student Counselor any questions you may have.
