Personal Counselling



PERSONAL COUNSELLING:

Personal counselling sessions are undertaken by the faculty members appointed by the college. The counsellor helps students with problems during their stay in the college. Counselling is a collaborative effort between the counsellor and the client. This kind of collaboration helps the clients identify goals and potential solutions to the problems which cause emotional turmoil, seek to improve communication and coping skills, strength self-esteem and promote behaviour change and optimal mental health. The counsellor serves as an empathetic listener. The counsellor analyses the problems of the students and takes a standardized psychological method to treat the student. The students might face emotional turbulence due to various problems like depression, abuse, harassment, family problems etc. The counsellor provides guidance and advice on solving the problems through the counselling sessions. The information shared by the students during the personal counselling sessions is kept confidential and dealt with compassionately. The ethical and legal limitations of counselling are discussed well in advance with the student during the first meet. The Counselling Cell of the college takes care of all the counselling related activities. They make up the core body that deals with issues faced by the students and provide early interventions, help and support to them.
