Most of you have come to IUJ far away from your home. You have come to achieve something you desire for future. An opportunity like this may not come to everyone at a right moment. You have worked hard and you made it happen.
However, sometimes, you experience unexpected situations that is beyond your control, or things turned out differently from your expectations. When it happens, it can be much harder to deal with it while you are in a different cultural environment, so simply, handling it on your own is not the best way. So how about using an alternative resource?
So, you cannot always control everything that happens to you. For example, a natural disaster, a war, sickness, financial issues, or a crisis of family members. Probably you have learned and known that so much already. When you are away from a familiar environment and situation raises, you probably need some new ways of coping. Your regular habits, tools, or friends and families that have helped you to deal with difficult times in past may not be accessible this time.
Consequently, it can lead you at risk of getting sick physically and mentally if you push yourself too hard.
This is why, you try using new tools whatever you are able to access to, in order to obtain your degree and even enjoy your time at IUJ.
So reasons and topics that each person bring to the counseling session is so different that you cannot guess what his/her counseling was for. In other words, anyone can come and tell me what is about.
