Abstract

This study examined the change in the problem areas of students who visited a university counselling centre for individual counselling over a period of 16 years. The findings showed that problem areas changed with the psychosocial and economic changes in the 16 years examined, and that the majority of students in the most recent period visited the centre with relationship problems. In addition, student problems through the different periods displayed great diversity, ranging from developmental problems to more severe psychological disorders.
