Individual and Group Counseling

The SMC Counseling Services staff provide a wide range of personal and group services for our students. Whether the issue is a personal problem or a pending decision, counseling is often the best way to clarify your concerns and learn how you might deal with them more effectively.  We have professionally trained counselors available to assist you and this service is offered at no additional cost to the student. Referrals can also be made to professionals in the surrounding community for additional medical or psychological health needs.

Throughout the school year, we offer Counseling Seminars lead by staff or local professionals to provide additional education on a variety of topics of interest to our student body.

Feel free to contact Counseling Services staff. We are able to assist students in most all areas of personal growth and adjustment. Appointments can be made by calling the office, emailing one of our counselors or by visiting Counseling Services in person.

Online Screening

Spartanburg Methodist College Counseling Services welcomes you to participate in a 24-hour online screening for depression, anxiety, substance abuse and other mental health conditions. This free screening is made available to all our SMC community members and is taken anonymously. The screening is provided so that you may find out — in a few minutes — whether or not professional consultation would be helpful to you. Take this opportunity to try it out!



In collaboration with the Student Development team, Counseling Services are available to all SMC students. Professional staff can assist students with their personal and interpersonal growth, with the goal of helping them become successful academically, socially, spiritually, and psychologically. While the college promotes a student-centered atmosphere in the Christian tradition, the Counseling Services staff respects the values of all clients.

All services are confidential and free of charge. Should additional help be needed, referrals may be made to medical professionals beyond the campus community.
