STUDENTS’ COUNSELLING CENTRE
The Students’ Counselling Centre of St. Aloysius College provides personal and vocational guidance to students of all the departments of the College.
The role of the counselling centre is to bring about positive behavioural changes in the students and further improve their ability to make their own decisions, understand their true potential and cope effectively with everyday problems they face. The counselling centre emphasizes helping students to make proper adjustments in academic pursuit and improve their quality of life. The counsellors motivate and support the students regularly in every kind of behavioural issue by offering support through listening and responding in a non-judgemental and confidential way, thereby, ensuring the students become well-adjusted and productive. The counsellors of the cell are trained to assess, diagnose and treat students dealing with stress, anxiety, depression, adjustment issues, social addictions and other day-to-day problems which can be personal, emotional, social, family, peer, academic, etc. This is done through individual or group counselling to help them with academic goals, social and personality development, career goals, enhancing listening skills, empathy and interpersonal skills to have healthy relationships and a healthy lifestyle.
