Centre for Counselling

The aim of the centre is to render services for a holistic development of students.


The objectives are:

  • To promote community’s awareness on the various services through provision of professional information and psycho-education.
  • To enhance the client’s ability to function normally and maximize his or her potentials, the centre offers an array of individualized services by effectively dealing with client’s bio-psychosocial needs.
  • To provide services that are tailored to the needs of individuals, including assessment, consultation, psychotherapy, and referrals.


What is counseling? Counseling is a one-to-one relationship between two people. The counsellor helps clients to explore, understand, and work through problems on an individual basis. It allows the client a safe place to be himself/herself and to say what he /she truly feel in confidence without fear of judgment, criticism or unwanted advice. A time spent with a competent professional can help a person address issues and enhance his/her productivity and life satisfaction.

The centre can cater to a wide variety of issues and concerns. While some can be for a short- termed and may be easily addressed after one or few counseling sessions, other issues can be for a longer period of time.
