Counseling Services offers fall semester therapy groups

By Melissa King

Counseling Services offers group therapy to all K-State students during each semester. Group therapy is the preferred therapy option for students wanting to better understand themselves and how they relate to and impact others.

Group therapy is one way to help address relationship concerns including difficulty saying "no," not opening up to others out of concern for being a burden, feeling alone or isolated, feeling anxious in social situations and more. It also can be helpful for concerns such as depression, anxiety, adjusting to college, and better understanding yourself and your emotions.

Find additional information at k-state.edu/counseling/student/group.html.

The cost for most groups is $7 per session, and they meet weekly all semester.  

Contact Counseling Services at 785-532-6927 to learn how to join a therapy group.
