Wellness Center and Student Counseling
Combining the 3 fields of medicine, psychology, and physical education, the Wellness Center was established with the dual aims of research and providing services to nurture better health holistically?in both body and mind. Alongside services and research relating to personal development and exercising self-control, the Wellness Center also deals with improving athletic performance.
Our student counseling offers high quality services centered on individual consultations that draw on a psychodynamic approach inspired by and building on the theory of the late Keigo Okonogi, a former professor of the Faculty of Environment and Information.
The Wellness Center strives to continue developing counseling methods using new technologies such as video chat counseling. It also actively supports students’ personal development, and gives proposals on how to improve campus life at SFC informed by the insights of psychologists. The student counselors also teach courses titled “Physical and Mental Health for Campus Life” and “こころのエクササイズ” (exercises for the heart and mind) to help students work on their mental health.
At the Wellness Center, experienced clinical psychologists are available for counseling services for students. This service is a valuable resource at SFC to promote better mental well-being, a fulfilling university life, and personal development. Do not hesitate to seek their support. Feel free to consult on anything that relates to student life, including your studies, relationships, career, and future plans. An English-speaking counselor is available.
