What is counselling?

Counselling is the process of enabling a person so that she/he can make the right choices and decisions in life. Only in some conditions does counselling bring about quick, dramatic change. Usually, it takes some time. The counselling process works by forming of a unique, therapeutic relationship between the counselor and the student.

What is Student Counselling Centre?

The Student Counselling Centre is where professional, confidential counselling service is available to all students of the college.
Counselling may provide a chance to find a new perspective on the problem and often to become more accepting of oneself in the process

Counselling is generally offered on a one to one basis, is short-term in nature, is strictly confidential and is provided free of charge.

Who is Eligible for Counselling?

Counselling can help anyone who needs a safe space to vent psychological pain. Counselling can help those who need to change their beliefs, value systems, behavior patterns when these are unfavorably impacting their goals or quality of life. In the college environment, the enhancement of academic performance and well-being on the campus are the ultimate counselling goals. These can be impacted by any issues in the student's family, social or college environment. Help in dealing with these issues will result in student performing better. Any student exhibiting unusual or undesirable behavior or a significant change in behavior should be referred to the counselor.

Why is counselling required in Educational Institutions?

As more and more families are becoming nuclear with both parents working, the growing child/adolescent finds him/herself increasingly isolated. With rapid proliferation of technology, addictions like social media, gaming, and texting are becoming increasingly common. In these conditions, many students lack a sense of direction or purpose which makes them prone to distraction and leads them to indulge in undesirable activities. They are deflected from the primary goal of acquiring academic excellence and skills essential for their upcoming professional life. Transitioning from school to the college environment necessitates adjustment on many counts ex. adjusting to the fast paced semester system, the hostel environment, homesickness, lack of language proficiency etc. The student also needs to adapt to the pressures of the academic workload. Techniques like time management, stress management are of significant help in this regard. Many students also face personal/ family related problems which impact motivation level. All these factors indicate the need and importance of college counselling services.
