Counseling for Students – Counselors and Therapists in Greenville, SC

Every year, nearly 60 million students take part in the back-to-school rush. As each summer draws to a close, there’s a mix of anticipation and excitement for many students, while other students could think of better ways to spend the next 180 school days. Regardless of desire, ability, or commitment to be at school, there’s a lot of pressure on students!

How is Your Student Handling the Pressure?

Students are exposed to more opportunities than ever before. They’re also exposed to more dangers. Beyond the drugs, alcohol, and relationships, students struggle with mental health issues, too. Family wealth and social class do little to spare students from facing serious emotional and mental health issues, some of which can become debilitation and last a lifetime. Students are pressured to excel academically. Athletes are expected to perform at the highest level on the field or court. The pressure is real and for some students, it’s unbearable.

Should My Child See a Therapist?

If you’re asking this question, you’re in the right place. Your child deserves to live a happy, meaningful, and fulfilled life. If something is preventing him or her from any of these things, don’t wait – get help now! Although you may not be able to pinpoint this issue (your student may not be able to either), a highly trained, licensed therapist can help you and your student gain a positive perspective and find healing. (Searching for therapist? Call (864) 952-4048)

Sometimes, students experience normal struggles. It’s part of their development – part of the process of moving from childhood to adulthood. Students can be moody, anxious, discouraged, and experience relationship issues – these things are common. However, if any of these issues become persistent, counseling for your student may help him or her learn from their experiences and develop healthy tools for dealing with difficult circumstances. Other considerations for student counseling include:

  • Excessive worry
  • Difficulty making friends
  • Anxiety in social settings
  • Comments such as, “I wish I wasn’t here,” or “no one would miss me”
  • Significant changes in sleep or appetite
  • Self-harm (cutting, pulling hair, picking skin)
  • Loss of confidence
  • Negative self-speak
  • Withdrawal from family and/or friends
  • Feelings of hopelessness
  • Anger outbursts

Thankful for Emily Gilliam!

ion. I thought I was handling it well until one day had a massive panic attack. I did my research and reached out to her immediately. She met with me the next day and helped my put a plan into place for recovery. The first time I met her, I knew I could trust her and she tailored my therapy and sessions to what I needed at the time and at each stage of progress. There were times I digressed and she helped me get back on track and we celebrated my small wins and progress together. I would recommend her to any friend or family member. I know personally, taking the first step to get help is an important one. I can confidently say she was a great first step for me and I know she's fantastic at helping others too.

my life where in my mind, I had nowhere to turn. I reached out and I had never done this before. It was extremely difficult to say to myself, “I need someone to talk to.” Not knowing who or where that someone would be. And so, I was introduced to Emily Gilliam. A stranger, a therapist, a counselor. I don’t talk as it is, but Emily made it easy as I spilled my circumstances, actions, thoughts, and beliefs to Emily in a comfortable and secure setting. And for over a year, Emily and I were able to get through my darkness, my tough time, my thoughts, my situation. I would not be in my better place right now if it were not for Emily or people like Emily that are in her profession. Emily and people like her are needed and I’m am very happy that our paths crossed. And if you find yourself in a dark spot, a dark place in life, and you have the opportunity for your path to cross into Emily’s, you would be in a safe, secure, professional, space. I do thank her every day, even though she may not know it, or may not know how important she is and was to me and how her help, advice, thoughts, options, and opinions that she gave me got me through my darkness. So, if this review reaches one person and that one person has the opportunity and good fortune to meet and talk to Emily, I would be happy for that one person, as that person would meet an excellent stranger, therapist, counselor, and maybe a friend. Thanks again Emily, I wish nothing but the best, CB.

is exceptionally skilled at what she does, yet makes each session feel effortless. I could feel she truly cared for me. She taught me practical coping mechanisms while also helping me discover who I was and why I should love every part of myself. I highly recommend Emily Gilliam.
