“A person’s real need, a most terrible need, is for someone to listen…not as a ‘patient’ but as a human soul. To listen well is to respond to a great human yearning."- Carl Rogers

Mental health issues can severely curtail an individual’s ability to lead a fulfilling life. They can cloud relationships, family lives, and careers. Counselling involves helping people to make necessary changes in ways of thinking, feelings, and behaviours. It is a collaborative goal-oriented process involving a non-judgmental supportive counsellor who assists clients in expressing their issues, developing viable goals, and developing strategies to achieve these goals.

Today, there is a dire need for counselling, in diverse populations of children, adolescents, families, health care, and correctional institutions. A two-year intensive Master's degree programme in Counselling aimed at holistic professional and personal development is the right option for those who are passionate about working towards the health and wellbeing of individuals, families, and communities. The programme is designed to train aspiring practitioners who seek advanced training in counselling. The programme incorporates current counselling patterns and prepares students to provide, develop, and sustain high-quality societal service.

Eligibility for Admission:
Any bachelor degree with a paper in Psychology – BA, BSc, BHRD, BBM, MBBS or Diploma in Counselling/ 2 years’ experience in Counselling.
