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.

The one-year course in psychosocial counselling aims to equip students with the necessary skills and knowledge to provide effective support to individuals, families, or groups facing environmental, emotional, or social challenges. Psychosocial counselling involves guiding individuals through one or more counselling sessions to overcome these obstacles and improve their overall health and well-being. As part of counselling psychology, students will learn to address various personal and relational issues across different aspects of life, including social, vocational, emotional, educational, health-related, organizational, and developmental needs.

The focus is on reducing psychological distress and promoting overall well-being. Through this course, students will gain insights into treatment approaches aimed at helping individuals in distress, fostering a holistic approach to counselling. The program emphasizes the transformative power of counselling, allowing individuals to shift their mindsets and address problems comprehensively rather than viewing individuals as isolated issues. Graduates of this course will be equipped to make meaningful contributions to the mental health and well-being of individuals in need of psychosocial support.
