Get Counselled   

Counselling psychology helps people in distress to lead a healthy, happy, and normal life. With psychological counselling, you learn to see things from a positive perspective.

In today’s stressful life it very common to see people fall sick not physically but mentally. They majorly require psychosocial counselling. Psychosocial counselling is the process of counselling an individual, family, or group during one or more sessions to support the process of overcoming environmental, emotional, or social problems that are affecting the health and well-being. Counselling psychology is a discipline within professional psychology focused on improving personal and relational functioning in all spheres of life. It cuts across vocational, emotional, educational, social, health-related, organizational, and developmental needs. They work to reduce psychological distress and promote the well-being of individuals. Counsellors will focus on treatment to help the people who are in discomfort. Counselling is not just a chance to sit and talk; your whole mind-set can be changed and refreshed by doing so. Instead of seeing the person as a problem, counselling focuses on seeing the problem as a whole and to treat the person wholesomely.

This one-year course will help to counsel the people to overcome environmental, emotional, or social problems and treat them wholesomely.
