Making Your First Appointment
All Wesley College students, full or part-time may seek counseling support at the Counseling Center. There is no fee for services at the center. To schedule the initial consultation session, call the Counseling Center at 302-736-2445 during office hours. The receptionist will ask for your name, address, and phone number, and will schedule a time for you to meet with a member of our staff.
Everything you discuss with your counselor is confidential. The counselor may speak with specific college staff if there is a threat of danger to one self or other. We need your written permission to talk to anyone else about anything you say or even to acknowledge that you come here. Under law, we are obliged to break confidentiality if: you intend to harm yourself or somebody else.
