Counseling Services

University life can be an exciting and challenging time. But it can also be a highly stressful time when students are faced with academic pressures as well as pressures from family and friends. Counseling offers you the opportunity to look at yourself and your environment and to change the way you think, feel, and behave so that you can make the most of your time at Sophia University.

Counseling services are available both in English and in Japanese. We provide assistance in dealing with concerns in the following areas: academic performance, career options, student life, relationships, mental and emotional health, etc. The information disclosed in a counseling session will be kept strictly confidential. A number of personality and vocational tests are available both in Japanese and in English, and they can be taken after consulting with a counselor. All services are free of charge.

*Please make an appointment either in person or by phone, and notify us when canceling an appointment.

*Each counseling session is 45-minute long.

*Confidentiality is strictly maintained.

『Curiosity - To make your life more interesting』  
Curiosity is sometimes considered as a negative feature, such as “childish” or “ignorant”. However, the mental mechanism of curiosity works as one of the engines to activate your mind to challenge something new, encounter something unknown, and be more interested in yourself and your own growth. This leaflet has a lot of suggestions about how to utilize and develop your curiosity!!
