The Center For Counseling & Wellness
Professional. Supportive. Academic
Our goal at the Center for Counseling & Wellness is to provide students with the support and counseling they need when they need it most. We strive to provide a professional and confidential setting for the psychological, emotional, and developmental support of students as they pursue their academic goals and personal growth. BU Counseling & Wellness Center provides supportive individual and group counseling free of charge for currently enrolled undergraduate students of Bluefield University. These services are provided by professional counselors and supervised graduate student interns. Services are designed to assist students with a number of concerns and to enhance their ability to be more effective and successful in their academic and personal lives.
Located in room 304G (Third Floor of the Science Building) BU’s Center for Counseling & Wellness offers several professional services which include:
- Individual counseling
- Group counseling
- Career counseling
- Crisis counseling
- Substance abuse counseling
- Consultation & collaboration with campus stakeholders
- Referral services to area mental health service providers
Students may sign up for counseling sessions by contacting Emily Cook at [email protected] or by phone at 276-326-4252. Students may also reach out with any questions they have about the counseling process or counseling services provided at BU.
Daily wellness activities were launched in September 2020 to help students take care of themselves by practicing daily self-care. The wellness activities vary from educational activities, giveaways, exercise sessions, to more. Some of the daily activities have included gardening, morning mindfulness, yoga, journal giveaway, exercise sessions, a drum circle, a financial wellness seminar, expressive arts, and a book club. All students are welcome to participate in the daily wellness activities and no prior sign-up is required.
