Jones County Junior College Counseling


The Counseling Center’s primary purpose is to provide holistic psychological support to students as they pursue their goals and objectives during their enrollment at JCJC. The Licensed Professional Counselors in The Counseling Center tend to the personal needs of students by providing support for them to explore emotional concerns, develop new awareness and skills, and appreciate existing strengths, qualities and abilities. The Counseling Center is primarily intended for assessment and short-term counseling that promotes overall wellness. Services are free of charge.

At the Counseling Center students may discuss and explore freely, in confidence, any concerns, feelings, or fears they may have. The ultimate goal is to help students grow in self- understanding, so that they can successfully cope with their immediate situations and with future decisions. Students can benefit from personal counseling by improving self-esteem, decreasing anxiety, learning stress management, addressing physical self-care, discussing relationships, and by developing a clear sense of self, purpose.

Counseling services are confidential within the ethical and legal guidelines proposed by the American Counseling Association and the State of Mississippi.
