Student Counselling

What Is Counselling?

Students seeking help of counselling are often mistaken for being problematic, and many are simply too shy to see a counsellor. They do not understand the nature of counselling is actually a unique, one-to-one relationship between counsellor and student who agree to meet privately and regularly for a period of time with the aim of restoring emotional well-being to the student. It also allows the counsellors to provide them with genuine support and positive guidance. In other words, it allows students to open up and be themselves and to say what they truly feel in confidence without fear of judgment and criticism.

One can experience life growth and receive psychological treatment through counselling.
