02 - Guidance and Counselling Cell

The Guidance and Counselling Cell was initiated with the aim of providing services to students and to journey with them in their lives by helping them build more resources within themselves, remove barriers that hinder their growing potential and feel more equipped to find their way in the world.

The Guidance and Counselling Cell caters to diverse socio-economic challenges, specific emotional needs, psychological needs, also the social, and cultural barriers of the heterogeneous cluster of learners. Trained Counsellors and Psychologists provide individual counselling at the College. The counsellors pay attention to each client compassionately and channel them to subsume with their tribulations through reflection and self-awareness. The cell guides the students of the college to enhance their overall personalities and facilitates them to meet challenges of their life with confidence. The Cell identifies students who require services on priority along with their areas of deficiency, suggests the improvement required through personal counselling and ensures that every student-teacher wears a smile on her face after the counselling session.
