Why is student counselling important?
Through proper guidance, students make better choices in life as well as get mentally prepared for the future. The students can also talk about their confusion, vulnerable moments, personal challenges and more with the counsellors. For anyone intrigued to improve personal development skills, the students also have an opportunity to seek guidance on how to reach their highest potential.
How does counselling work?
Once you are allocated your counsellor, the session is conducted virtually where the counsellor will request you to stay in an area with no disturbance, a good internet connection and turn on your video. 1st session is usually you sharing your background and talking about your challenges where the counsellor will share their opinion of your state of wellbeing. You both will sit together to work on building a better version of yourself through mutual respect and cooperation.
Will my counsellor share my information?
Client confidentiality is the counsellor’s priority. Any information shared with a counsellor is kept with the utmost confidentiality. The counsellor will only disclose the information to the college/ parents/ law enforcement agency if the client intends to harm themselves or others.
