welcome for counseling service

Hello members!!

Say if you are a student at a school, and there are school counsellors for the students' well being. Would you expect to see a (hand-made) sign on the door to the counsellor's office that says "Welcome for counseling service." to mean counseling service is available and you are welcome to go talk to them???

I kind of think that it's awkward, but I cannot tell what is wrong with it. Maybe the 'for'??

P.S I saw a similar sign at a school that said "Welcome for counseling service and discussions.", I changed it for simplicity.

What do you think??
Thank you!

    No, 'welcome for' is not used. 'Welcome to the counselling service' could be used once you are already inside, but does not quite mean what you want: "Welcome: Here is the counselling service". (I wouldn't say it that way either.) Perhaps two separate lines, 'counselling service' then 'welcome'.
