COUNSELLING SERVICE IN VIT CHENNAI
Counselling is a collaborative effort between the counsellor and the client. VIT Chennai has to its credit, a free and absolutely confidential one-to-one Counselling Service which provides psychological support to students, faculty, and staff. Professional counsellors help clients identify goals and potential solutions to problems which cause emotional turmoil; seek to improve communication and coping skills; strengthen self-esteem; and promote behaviour change and optimal mental health.
WHY IS COUNSELLING AN IMPORTANT PART OF COLLEGE LIFE?
Counselling is a type of learning about oneself, one’s feelings, and one’s relationships with others. As in any learning environment, students will benefit most if they participate actively, attend sessions on time, and are open and honest with the counsellor.
The counsellor works with you to help you identify your strengths, gain insight into your ways of thinking, feeling and behaving, gain insights for managing mental health issues like anxiety and depression.
HOW DOES COUNSELLING HELP?
Personal or psychological counselling offers you the opportunity to talk about social, emotional, or behavioural problems that are either causing you distress or interfering with your functioning. Counsellors are trained professionals who can respond to your concerns in an objective and non-judgmental manner. The counselling relationship is unique in that, it provides a safe forum for you to speak freely, knowing that what is shared will be kept private and confidential.
