Counseling Services

Hampden-Sydney College Counseling Services offer a range of counseling and mental health services to students. We welcome students of all backgrounds, beliefs, and orientations. We provide treatment to students who are dealing with a variety of issues and help them find an overall sense of well-being. We provide the following services: brief psychotherapy, psychiatric services, group or couples counseling and consultations. We offer assistance to students who are referred for counseling services to off-campus providers as well.

We are happy to meet with faculty/staff for a one-time consultation, but we do not provide on-going counseling.
