University Counselor

Dr. Amoneeta Beckstein

Webster University Thailand is committed to supporting the emotional and psychological well-being of all members of the Webster family to be successful in their personal, professional, and academic lives. Anyone who needs a free, private, and confidential space to talk through their concerns can do so in a safe and comfortable environment.

The Counseling Center is headed by Dr. Amoneeta Beckstein, a Licensed Professional Counselor from the U.S.A. who specializes in college student well-being and adjustment. Amoneeta is experienced in providing college students, faculty, and staff culturally sensitive services. For any number of common challenges (e.g., life adjustment, time management, stress, self-esteem, identity development, interpersonal relationship concerns, discrimination, career decision, academic distress, anxiety, depression, suicidal ideation, and sexual assault), he recognizes that everyone may face some barriers to optimal functioning at any point in their lives.

Confidentiality is not a privilege; it is a right. No family members, friends, faculty, or staff have a right to your personal information. Of course, as with any rights, there are particular circumstances under which you waive this right. The counselor will discuss this with you during your initial session or over the phone should you prefer.

Counseling Center Intern at Bangkok Center

We are pleased to introduce Revathi Ganeshsundaram, a highly qualified Counselor Intern, who started providing free and confidential counseling for students, faculty, and staff both at the BKK Center and online.

Revathi is from India and is an advanced Counseling Psychology graduate student at Assumption University Bangkok. She also has a PhD in Industrial Psychology. She has years of experience teaching graduate courses and working as a human resource professional.

Revathi believes in the power of positivity and in the connectedness of all life. Her preferred approaches to counseling are Person-Centered Therapy, which places utmost value on the quality of the client-counselor relationship and client empowerment, and Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, which focuses on client determined goals. Both approaches believe that people have their own resources for change, and their aim is not to “fix problems” but to facilitate growth.

Confidentiality is not a privilege; it is a right. No family members, friends, faculty, or staff have a right to your personal information. Of course, as with any rights, there are particular circumstances under which you waive this right. The counselor will discuss this with you during your initial session or over the phone should you prefer. *While only the counselor checks the counselor email, confidentiality of emails cannot be guaranteed.
